GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE

November 30, 2021

Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine prices continue to decrease due to abundant supply and weak demand.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Iceberg availability is inconsistent due to low weights; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed
  • MFC Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are readily available
  • Arizona and California desert production is in full swing; ideal weather conditions are promoting growth
  • Lettuce and leaf quality is very good: growth cracking, mildew pressure, fringe burn, and seeder are present in some lots
  • Demand is moderate following Thanksgiving
  • Markets are expected to continue declining until demand ramps up early to mid- December for the holidays
