The tomato market is on the rise. In brief, here’s why:
- Cool, rainy and windy weather in Florida caused a gap in production.
- Only a handful of growers from Mexico have product to sell.
- Demand is picking up for the upcoming holiday.
These factors have combined creating a jump in the market. We expect the higher FOB’s to hold through the 1st of the year. Watch for updates here as we go through the next couple of weeks.
