Markon First Crop (MFC) Broccoli and Markon Essentials (ESS) Cauliflower supplies are readily available. Broccoli markets are slightly higher this week while cauliflower markets are falling.


  • California-grown quality is good; crown size, color, and texture is ideal
  • Overall supplies are sufficient to meet demand; markets are rising but are mostly steady at average levels
  • Mexican-grown product is available for loading in South Texas at slightly higher FOB costs
    • Availability is down amid a harvesting gap this week as crops transition to fields at higher altitude
    • Product reviewed by Markon inspectors is exhibiting excellent quality due to dry, temperate weather


  • Supplies are increasing quickly in the West Coast growing regions of Salinas and Santa Maria
  • Quality issues are minimal but include dark spotting and off-color, oversized heads
  • Ideal growing conditions have increased available supplies and lowered markets
  • Expect prices to continue falling through the end of this week, at minimum

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
