Poor weather on the coasts have limited supply for zucchini and yellow squash; demand is strong. Markon First Crop (MFC) Zucchini and Yellow Squash are limited; packer label is being substituted as needed.

  • Florida’s supply is extremely limited due to cold and rainy weather over the last three weeks; quality is hit or miss (especially on yellow squash)
  • Mexico production is suffering from frost damage and low yields due to last week’s cold temperatures; quality is average, scarring and misshape are primary concerns
  • Some suppliers in Mexico and Florida have enacted disaster clauses on contracts
  • Expect very high prices and limited availability over the next two weeks

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
