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
