Markon First Crop (MFC) Green Leaf and Romaine Lettuces are available; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed due to low weights following persistently cold temperatures. Supplies are ample in the Arizona/California desert growing regions.

  • Despite weather challenges including light morning ice formation and moderate winds, quality remains strong
    • Fringe burn and epidermal blistering/peeling are present in some finished packs but most is being trimmed off at harvest points
    • Elevated insect pressure has been noted in some lots from California’s Imperial Valley region
  • Abundant supplies are allowing suppliers to carefully choose lots, keeping prices steady and weights/quality high
  • Expect markets to remain steady at low levels over the next 10-14 days

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
