Berry Update – 5/23/24

Berries are a staple commodity at this time of year, read more below for what’s happening in the market …


  • Salinas/Watsonville: Cooler temperatures are keeping production manageable for most shippers. There is still a good amount of fruit available, and volume orders are flexible going into the weekend.
  • Santa Maria: This area is on a downward plant life cycle, with gradually declining numbers expected as we move into June. Below-normal temperatures are slowing production slightly, spreading volume further into next week.


Several areas are producing blueberries, including Central Mexico, Baja, Central Coast California, and Georgia. We will see an abundance of product over the next few weeks.


We are experiencing a flush of blackberries currently out of Central Mexico, with very strong increases in production against only moderate demand.


Recent light supplies have increased to growing availability. Stronger numbers are expected as we move into June.
