Market Overview

The Star Group sends out a market update every two weeks to keep our customers informed on what is happening with commodity crops and supply. Ask your sales representative to be added to the Market Overview list.

Feature: Mar 15/2017 hot house tomatoes The hot house tomato market is staying very weak out of Mexico, with outstanding quality; a great time to promote. Look for this to continue with no sign of the MX deal getting any stronger, as the Canadian season is 3 weeks away.
