Green leaf and romaine supplies are meeting demand in the Arizona/California desert growing regions. Iceberg supplies are light due to lettuce ice and high winds stalling growth.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Green Leaf is available out of the Arizona/California desert growing region
  • MFC Iceberg and Romaine are available; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted when necessary due to light case weights
  • Quality is good despite weather challenges
  • Upcoming rain, continued cool temperatures, and high winds will yield minimal amounts of epidermal blistering, fringe burn, elevated dirt in finished packs, mildew, and bottom rot
  • Green leaf and romaine prices are expected to remain steady through next week
  • Expect Iceberg markets to increase and lower volume due cold weather impacting the Arizona/California desert region

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
