UPDATE: Broccoli Market Rising

September 12, 2019

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

  • Markon First Crop Broccoli Crowns are sporadic
  • Quality issues include brown bead, hollow core, and pin rot
  • Mexican supplies are limited as rain is impacting the growing region
  • Processor demand will increase and put upward pressure on prices

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
