Green leaf and romaine supplies are ample in the Arizona/California desert growing regions. Iceberg stocks are a bit tighter compared to previous weeks, as multiple days of lettuce ice have stalled growth.

  • 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 good; epidermal blistering, fringe burn, insect pressure, and mildew are present in some lots
  • Green leaf and romaine prices are expected to remain fairly steady into next week
  • Iceberg markets will inch up as continued cold weather impacts the Arizona/California desert region, lowering volume
