PRICE RELATIONSHIPS FOR MEXICAN FRESH TOMATOES IN U.S. AND MEXICAN TERMINAL MARKETS

Tomato trade between the U.S. and Mexico has grown significantly during the past decade, with significant implications for markets in both countries. This work examines how terminal market prices for Mexican fresh tomatoes are being affected by price dynamics in distant, integrated markets by analyzing reaction patterns to various innovation shocks. We conclude that a high interdependence in the price formation process between Mexican markets and Los Angeles, as well as among Mexican markets, exists.
