Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets are elevated, though they have started to weaken as supplies increase.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are sporadic due to low weights; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed
  • The harvesting transition to the Salinas and Santa Maria Valleys is nearly complete
    • Huron production will end this week
    • A limited amount of iceberg will remain in Oxnard through May
  • Quality is strong; growth cracking, inconsistent density and sizing, and insect pressure are present in some lots
  • Supply availability will continue to vary from week to week as growers navigate delayed and/or missed plantings due to excessive rains
  • Overall industry supplies continue to trend higher, driving markets lower
  • Demand is strong for the Mother’s Day; markets are expected to decline further post-holiday
