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
