UPDATE: CUCUMBERS

August 23, 2022

Cucumber supplies are tight due to heavy rains in Mexico and reduced volume on the East Coast. Markets are higher.

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Cucumbers are limited; packer label may be substituted as necessary
  • Recent monsoon rains, disrupting harvest and supply routes, has limited Mexico supply from the Baja Peninsula
  • East Coast supply is tight; previous weather has affected quality
  • New Jersey will harvest new fields this week, assisting overall volume heading into the weekend
  • Michigan and Wisconsin stocks are limited as fields move past peak production
  • Washington growers are beginning production on ground-grown cucumbers with concerns around yellow undersides and misshapen products
  • Expect higher prices over the next one to two weeks
