Green leaf and iceberg prices are easing due to increased supplies in Salinas and Santa Maria, California. Romaine markets are fairly steady.

Green Leaf and Romaine

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are readily available
  • Green leaf and romaine quality is good; fringe burn, internal burn, and insect pressure are present in some lots
  • Markets are expected to remain steady at low levels through July


  • MFC Premium Iceberg is currently being packed; Markon Best Available (MBA) may be substituted due to low weights
  • Weights have increased following a recent warming trend; temperatures have cooled but they will increase again next week
  • California iceberg demand is moderately elevated as Guanajuato and Querétaro, Mexico, continue to struggle with reduced quality and lower yields following inclement weather
  • Markets are expected to continue inching down over the next 7 to 10 days
