Dear Ole Tyme Customers:

UPDATE: Celery supplies continue to be extremely limited due to the many rainstorms Salinas & Oxnard experienced the last few months. Celery shippers in Salinas are behind schedule with product not sizing up.


  • Expect market pricing to continue to go up as all suppliers will have limited supplies and will struggle to cover averages.
  • Shippers are seeing seeder issues at the end of the Oxnard season as well as Salinas causing lowering yields.
  • Celery fields in Salinas are 2-3 weeks behind causing a gap in supplies.
  • Suppliers will be struggling to cover averages to get through this shortage in Oxnard and the start of Salinas.
  • Black heart along with decay is causing lower yields as well.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Representative.
