Green leaf and romaine supplies are increasing as production in the Arizona and California desert continues to ramp up. Iceberg supplies remain extremely limited, but orders are being covered in full.

  • Quality is very good; fringe burn and epidermal blister/peel are present in some lots following high winds and cool temperatures
  • Markets are weaker and are anticipated to continue to decline in the coming weeks, pending a severe lettuce ice event

  • Quality is good; light weights, epidermal blister/peel, and fluctuating densities are present in most lots
