A major duration Santa Ana wind event is occurring in SoCal though Friday. These winds have the potential to impact numerous crops grown in the region.
In Yuma, Arizona growers are 7-14 days ahead of harvesting schedules. The weather has been ideal for crops and demand has been lower creating deflated markets.
We are anticipating a supply gap at the end of this month/beginning of January.
We will see celery, broccoli, and cauliflower slowly trend higher as we approach the Christmas pull over the next three weeks. When the temperatures drop enough to cause lettuce ice and delays in harvesting, the markets will react very quickly.
