Zucchini and yellow squash markets remain elevated. Markon First Crop (MFC) Zucchini and Yellow Squash are limited; packer label is being substituted as needed.

  • Florida’s volume is extremely low as early January’s poor weather damaged fields and took some acreage out of production
  • Mexican supplies are snug due to past cold weather and rain affecting the yields in southern Sinaloa; growers anticipate a challenging February as cooler weather pushed back plantings and could impact the transition to southern Sonoran fields
  • Some suppliers in Mexico and Florida have enacted disaster clauses on contracts
  • Expect continued high prices and limited availability over the next two weeks
