UPDATE: ICEBERG AND GREEN LEAF LETTUCE – PRICES RISING
May 13, 2020
Iceberg and green leaf lettuce demand is strong due to Memorial Day orders and businesses reopening from COVID-19 shut-downs. Rain that is forecast for Sunday, May 17, through Tuesday, May 19 will further tighten supplies.
Prices will gradually increase through next week, then stabilize after the holiday weekend
Harvesting will be delayed due to wet, muddy conditions; crews will work to minimize dirt and mud on boxes
Markon First Crop suppliers will pack orders in advance to ensure coverage for orders loading at the beginning of next week
