The Brussels sprouts market is inching up due to reduced supplies in Central Mexico.

  • Baja Mexico, Central Mexico, and Oxnard, California are the current primary growing regions
    • The Santa Maria season is scheduled to start in early June
    • Salinas Valley production will follow in early July
  • Quality is diminished in supplies from Central Mexico due to elevated temperatures that are causing discoloration and increasing insect pressure
    • Growing conditions in Baja and Oxnard remain ideal
    • Markon orders are being filled with product from Baja and Oxnard for best quality
  • Expect prices to continue rising over the next two weeks, until the Santa Maria harvest begins
