Dave’s Weekly Market Update — April 28, 2023

Each week Honor Foods Dairy Specialist David Albert provides you with Dave’s Weekly Market Update, with some valuable insights on the most current market price changes on eggs, butter, cheese, and cream products.


This market is amazing. Down almost $2.50 a dozen in the last month. I do expect more decreases until retail steps up and starts featuring eggs. They have been making the extra money by not dropping and demand has just not been there. The national inventory is high and there is a glut of eggs.

Butter has remained firm and went up over a penny today. Not much inventory has changed hands in the past few weeks. I expect more of the same in the coming weeks. Markets bouncing between the mid $2.30’s and maybe up to around $2.50. 


Both Block and Barrel firmed up today with Barrels jumping .10. The volume on Barrels was high again this week but lower than the past 2 weeks. Buyers were there today but the sellers were not. Hopefully we have hit the bottoms on these markets as the past few weeks have been painful!  In about 2 weeks we will have some Dinner Bell cheddars back in stock. They have been unavailable due to a fire at the plant in Wisconsin. 


Cream dropped slightly for the month of May on the Golden Sunshine Label. Inventories have seemingly rebounded after weeks of tight supplies in the North East on all of our labels.  

We all want to thank you for your business and wish you a safe and relaxing weekend.
