2010 Summer Vegetable Prices Holding Strong (Aug. 11, 2010)

As desert preparations continue for the upcoming winter vegetable season, a quick check on summer (June, July & August) produce prices (FOB, Los Angeles) mostly ranged from strong to moderately strong and were very steady. Iceberg prices (wrapped 24s) topped the $20/carton range during an extended period in June, and again in July, and have averaged well over $16 per carton during the entire summer. The June-July average for Romaine (24s) has been hovering around the $11.50 range and recently topped $14/carton last week. After starting the summer at $19/carton (bunched, 14s), broccoli prices have been steady at or around the $11/carton range during June-July and the first week of August. To date, lower and fluctuating prices, typically seen during a production season, have been a rarity during the summer of 2010.
