UPDATE: Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine Supplies

March 27, 2017

Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine prices continue to escalate. Supplies are extremely limited due to erratic weather conditions over the past several months.

  • Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine Lettuces are sporadic; Markon Best Available is being substituted due to low weights and quality issues
  • Supplies will be tighter and prices will escalate next week; warm weather for much of the Yuma season has pushed harvesting ahead of schedule
  • Value-added green leaf and romaine stocks will be especially tight
    • Processors are experiencing extremely strong demand, forcing them to hold customers to averages
    • Markon recommends members monitor sales to ensure key customers are covered

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
