Broccoli & Cauliflower
Yuma AZ, is expecting freezing weather temperatures in the mornings starting this week. These temps will reduce availability and could cause increased pricing on cauliflower and broccoli. Oxnard, CA is also expecting freezing temps and rain this week. We still have some solid pricing and availability on The Marketplace now, so we recommend getting in orders ASAP before the weather reduces supply. See Broccoli and Cauliflower availability.
