Strawberry fresh market volume in California is still trending much
slower than this same time last year. Currently only half as much volume
is being picked as this time last season. Santa Maria fields (top
photo) have been picking out about a third as much volume over the past
few days as the Oxnard district has. Oxnard fields (bottom photo) are
ahead of Santa Maria by a few weeks, but both districts expect to have
decent volume in about three weeks.
