Asparagus weekly market outlook

Lite-Side-of-Mothers-Day

5/21/20 Miami Asparagus: Obregon, Mexico has less production this week due to heat in the fields which has caused a large amount of spreading/seeding. The weather outlook is showing higher temperatures for the next 7-10 days. Both regions in Peru have increased production this week. This will continue through the 2nd week in June when their winter season begins. We’re still seeing local production in Indiana, Michigan, Canada, and New Jersey. California and Washington are still in good production. Markets on both coasts have come off due to lower demand and more local production. We’re still seeing packing delays due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures in both Peru and Mexico.
