UPDATE: Iceberg Lettuce

October 19, 2017

The iceberg lettuce market is rapidly dropping. Supply exceeds demand.

  • Markon First Crop Premium Iceberg remains sporadic; Markon Best Available will be substituted due to low weights
  • Harvesting is underway in Huron, California (the San Joaquin Valley), increasing overall market supplies
  • Weather in the Salinas Valley has been mainly favorable over the last two weeks, increasing volume in that region
  • Expect the market to continue declining over the next several days before stabilizing in the low to mid-20s (through November)     

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
