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
