In Arkansas, the digging season begins September 1. Buying season starts 2 weeks later. This is a forum for diggers and dealers to ask questions and communicate with each other. It’s a meeting space for those in the industry to share information with all of us about the markets and prices across the ginseng-growing regions.

Note: The prices you see discussed here are NOT the prices you should expect if you are buying ginseng for personal consumption. These are the wholesale prices that dealers give to diggers.

Diggers, please share what prices you’ve found in your part of the country or post a comment to find a dealer. Just mention your county/state, not your exact location.

Dealers, if you’d like to comment with your contact information so diggers can find you, please do. If you ship internationally and sell retail, that’s good information to list as well.

We’re all anxiously waiting to see what this year’s market will do. Speculations, rumors, and hearsay are great for discussing but everyone should DYOR (do your own research) and verify before taking any small talk to heart.

Please join in the conversations. Comments are open!

    I need some one who need Ginseng in large quantity. If you place your command before i can dig it.

    1. Hi Ghangshi, at the moment I don’t know anyone from the US who imports from Cameroon. But maybe someone visiting this website will see your offer. Is your ginseng American ginseng?

  5. Looking for contacts, connections. I’m in East Tennessee. First year buying ginseng, I’ve bought 45-50 pounds this month, I’ve been paying $50-$100 less a pound then a local buyer I know and reselling it to him. How ever I do plan on continuing to buy every and I will start buying alot more once I start advertising it. I know alot of diggers, but been just buying from few people I know. Am able to ship. Green, dry, with plant intact
