Cucumber markets are lower. West Coast supplies are increasing as production picks back up following severe weather in Mexico.

  • Markon First Crop and Markon Essentials Cucumbers are available
  • The Baja, Mexico season is winding down; overall volume has increased since the wet weather in mid-September
  • Quality is average; No.1 grading is tight
  • The Nogales, Arizona season has begun in a limited manner
    • Stocks will increase during October
    • Central Mexico is providing limited supplies (crossing into south Texas)
  • Hurricane Orlene barely missed the Culiacan, Mexico growing region which typically starts production in November; replanting will not be required
  • The East Coast is transitioning south to Georgia and Northern Florida, escaping damage from Hurricane Ian
  • Quality is excellent; growers in Central and South Florida are evaluating fields this week and will replant if necessary
  • Expect prices to decrease over the next two weeks
