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

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
