Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine supplies are plentiful in the Arizona/California desert growing regions. Lettuce ice forecast through early next week will hinder growth and cause daily harvest delays.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf is readily available out of the Arizona/California desert growing region
  • MFC Premium Iceberg and Romaine are being packed regularly; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed due to light case weights
  • Quality is very good; epidermal blister, fringe burn, and growth crack are present in some lots
  • Despite cold weather forecast into early next week, supplies are expected to remain abundant
  • Expect markets to remain fairly steady at low levels over the next two to three weeks

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
