December 24, 2019
Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine supplies will be limited for the next several weeks; expect active markets into the new year.  
  • November’s rainy weather and recent low temperatures have reduced yields; epidermal blistering/peeling and decay are the main quality issues 
  • Harvesting crews are working limited hours this week and next, further tightening inventories 
  • More rain is expected this Thursday, December 26, paving the way for widespread lettuce ice moving into the weekend
  • Expect limited stocks and climbing prices
