What are ginseng root prices 2014 ?
Today (10-04-14) I was informed by a local digger that area buyers have stopped buying altogether or only offering very low ginseng root prices in Kingston, AR. If you have news from your area, please leave a comment. The word from one of our local buyers is that there’s been a flood of roots to the market, likely due to the Appalachian Outlaws show prompting more digging than ever before. The protests in Hong Kong have also played a part.
New Update: Someone told me they sold roots to a buyer in Harrison, AR for around $400-500/lb on 10/25.
- prices range from 600.00 to 750.00 Lb dry wild Seng in Ohio (10/11/14)
- Iowa – fresh ginseng root $220/lb
- Kentucky – dried ginseng root $700/lb (roots legally procured in Arkansas, at least, should not already be dry…)
- Arkansas, Harrison – $550/lb on 9/25 – no longer buying at all 10/1 (market bottomed out) 10/25 – buying again $400-500/lb
If you’re a buyer and want to list your contact info in the comments, feel free to do that as well. If you happen to be a merchant in China who wants to post information from your end of the world, please do. Translate to English before posting if possible.
I’ve moved the comments from my old blog over to this one and appended them here because I didn’t think they’d carry over when I moved the blog:
