Raspberries and Blackberries are Trending Down

The price for blackberries and raspberries are trending down right now due to low consumer demands. Supplies also remain tight due to the downswing of production in Mexico. Additionally, growers are continuing to report quality challenges that are impacting these items. We recommend that you carefully check the quality of these products before you sell these items.

Brussels Sprouts Supplies are Light

Brussels Sprouts supplies are very light right now, but with good availability on smaller size sprouts. The demand for these items remains average, but consumers must be cautious of the quality. 

Grapes Are In Bad Supply and Quality

The Import Grape season is coming to a close.  Mexico is experiencing heavy rains which are affecting these products. It’s causing issues on arrival and grape quality. Additionally, the excess rain and high temperatures are significantly impacting the shelf life of these products.
