  • The Arizona/California desert season is coming to an end
  • Green Leaf, iceberg, and romaine will be increasingly available out of the Huron and Salinas Valley growing regions over the next 10-14 days
  • Strawberry quality is improving; ample supplies are expected for Easter and Mothers’ Day
  • Markon inspectors will be monitoring each region daily
