Potato Market Udpate

Raw Yellow Potatoes SlicedRusset potato supplies across the nation continue to diminish, resulting in record-low inventories across the country. All shipping regions are likely to experience some spot outages in late July. Pricing and demand remain very strong.

Red potato harvest has began and will soon be available from growers in Texas. Growers in the Midwest expect to begin harvest the first week of August.

Harvest has started for new crop yellow potatoes across multiple growing regions, including California, Arizona and Virginia. Texas growers will begin harvest shortly. Pricing remains strong.

White potatoes remain available in California and Virginia with most products staying close to the shipping area. Pricing continues to be strong, as there are limited supplies.

Few fingerlings are available from growers in California, with record high pricing. Growers in New Mexico will begin harvest in early July, which will be very welcome news to the marketplace.
