UPDATE: Lettuce, Leafy Greens, Broccoli and Cauliflower

October 15, 2019

Supplies are limited; prices continue to climb. 

  • Limited iceberg lettuce harvesting has begun in Huron, California
    • Salinas Valley stocks remain limited, which will keep markets elevated
    • Shipments between Salinas and Huron typically overlap, helping equalize available supplies, but this year Mother Nature has disrupted maturity in both growing areas
  • Volume will be extremely low through November due to damage caused by a rain/hail storm in the desert in late September
  • Expect elevated prices
