UPDATE: Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine
September 25, 2017
Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine supplies are tightening; prices are rising.
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 followed by lower-than-normal temperatures have caused quality problems and reduced yields
Another heat wave is expected next week, which will further limit supplies
Processors started purchasing iceberg and romaine fields to supplement their raw product losses
Prices are expected to remain elevated through November
