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.
