Update: Grapes

March 27, 2017

Markon First Crop (MFC) Lunch Bunch Grapes are available in 21-pound portion packs from Chile through early May. The season will wind down over the next several weeks (typical for this time of the year). As harvesting ends in Chile, supplies will be shipped from storage; prices will rise.

  • Chilean green and red seedless prices are expected to climb; stocks are beginning to tighten due to fewer shipments from Chile as the season winds down
  • The market is expected to ease when Mexican new crop supplies hit the market in early May
  • New crop Mexican red seedless fruit will begin shipping in early May
