    We will continue to see extremely limited supplies of broccoli and cauliflower due to cold temperatures in Yuma. Broccoli Crowns are extremely limited and size is the major problem. Most suppliers are having to sub into bunched broccoli. Celery is extremely limited. Oxnard and Santa Maria growing regions are struggling with less acreage and slow growth rates. The market is extremely active and there isn’t any relief in sight until Florida starts next week sometime. Until then, we will see extreme markets and limited supplies.
