Dave’s Weekly Market Update — November 4, 2022

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.


Eggs have continued to rise as 4th quarter holiday baking is underway. Supplies are still short to needs, so I do expect more next week. There were another 1 million birds taken out due to another outbreak in Iowa.

Butter tanked this week and rebounded some today. We, like everyone, can not get new products in right away, so we have to come down gradually so as not to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars. I never thought this would happen this early in the year. 


Both blocks and Barrels slipped this week. Blocks only a few cents and barrels almost 20 cents. The spread is finally in the proper perspective. Blocks over Barrels but much higher than the old normal of 2 or 3 cents. 


Due to the drop in the butter market, we decided to come off some on the price of all our heavy cream. Both Sommer Maid and Golden Sunshine. were reduced in price. We brought in half gallons of half and a half due to the current shortages of this item. It is packed 6/case, and we are going out next week at $4.45 per unit or $2.225 per quart. 

We all thank you and hope you have an awesome weekend.  Go Phillies!
