UPDATE: Broccoli Market Rising

September 09, 2019

Prices are rising. Warmer, humid conditions in the Salinas and Santa Maria, California growing regions have resulted in quality issues, reducing yields. Expect elevated markets over the next several weeks.

  • Markon First Crop Broccoli Crowns are sporadic; Markon Best Available and packer label are being substituted as necessary
  • Quality issues include brown bead, hollow core, and pin rot
  • Supplies out of Mexico are limited as rain impacts the growing region
  • Expect limited stocks and higher markets for the next several weeks

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
