UPDATE: Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine
September 20, 2017
Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine supplies are tightening; prices will start climbing next week.
Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are sporadic; Markon Best Available will be substituted as necessary
High temperatures experienced earlier this month have caused quality problems and reduced yields
Processors have begun purchasing fields of iceberg and romaine to supplement their raw product losses
The Salinas Valley will experience lower-than-normal temperatures this week, slowing plant growth
Regionally grown stocks will decline over the next several weeks, shifting demand back to the West Coast
