Markon First Crop (MFC) Broccoli and Markon Essentials (ESS) Cauliflower are readily available.


  • California-grown quality is good; crown size, color, and structure is ideal
  • Overall supplies are sufficient to meet demand; markets are mostly steady at slightly above-average levels
  • Mexican-grown product is available for loading in South Texas at comparable FOB costs
  • Product reviewed by Markon inspectors is exhibiting excellent quality due to dry, temperate weather


  • Yields are lower, but remain abundant in the West Coast growing regions of Salinas and Santa Maria
  • Quality issues are minimal but include dark spotting, off-color, and inconsistently sized heads
  • Expect prices to firm up through this week but remain relatively depressed into June
