COVID-19 Impact on Fruit and Vegetable Markets: One Year Later

Other Titles

Abstract

More than one year after the outbreak of COVID-19, fruit and vegetable markets continue to adjust to the evolving landscape. In this article, we focus on three key measures of input and output market performance that serve as indicators of the stability of fruit and vegetable markets in the medium-term, and offer some insight for how these markets will continue to adjust in the longer run. Specifically, we use data to highlight the most recent trends in (i) the production and aggregate movement for major fruit and vegetable crops in the United States and Canada, (ii) labour supply and immigration visa patterns, and (iii) U.S.-Canada trade patterns for fruits and vegetables. We provide evidence that the fresh produce supply chain has remained relatively robust in the months following the outbreak of COVID-19.
