Harvesting in the Arizona/California desert growing region continues to wind down for the season. Supplies will be depleted by late April. Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets have moved upward over the past two weeks, but have stabilized as growers transition to Huron, Oxnard, and Salinas, California.
- Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are readily available; Markon Best Available (MBA) Iceberg is being substituted as needed due to low case weights
- Huron and Oxnard California harvests are underway; Salinas Valley production has started in a light way and will continue ramping up next week
- Supplies will vary from week to week in the early part of the Salinas season, as growers navigate delayed or missed plantings caused by excessive rainfall and colder-than-normal temperatures
- Expect active markets through April; prices will be lower in May as industry supplies strengthen
