Prices for lettuce and leafy greens are rising. Expect limited supplies and elevated markets over the next several weeks.    

  • Above-normal temperatures and humid conditions continue to diminish volume
  • Quality concerns in iceberg and leafy green items are reducing available yields; processors have begun purchasing additional fields to meet demand
  • Local regional programs along the East Coast will wrap up in the coming weeks, moving orders to the West Coast
