Overall, cucumbers are showing steady supply and demand on both coasts. However, recent rainy weather on the East Coast is affecting supply and quality. Prices are up on the West Coast due to strong demand. Supply should increase over the next few weeks and bring down the market. Cucumber supplies out of Baja and Mexico are tight. See Cucumber availability.
Pears out of Washington are steady in demand and volume, with Bartletts just getting started and Anjou Pears now finished. As Washington volume picks up over the next few weeks, you can expect prices to come down. California pears are still available, and you can find organic Bartletts posted on the Marketplace now. See Pear availability.
The squash market is up with light supplies on both coasts this week. On the East Coast, the weather is affecting availability and quality, leading to higher pricing and a tight market. Western supplies are also being affected by heat in the Santa Maria region. Zucchini on the west coast will continue to be short until Central CA starts in the next week or two. Yellow Squash is also tight, but less so than zucchini on the West Coast. See Summer Squash availability.
