Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets are slowly rising as the Salinas season begins to wind down.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf is readily available; MFC Premium Iceberg and Romaine are being packed regularly, with Markon Best Available (MBA) being substituted as needed due to low weights
  • Harvesting crews are trimming heads to minimize insect damage, mildew, and wind damage
  • Impatiens Spot Necrotic Virus (INSV) presence is markedly lower compared to prior years
  • Expect prices to continue to inch up as growers manage remaining acreage ahead of transition
    • Market spikes experienced the last two seasons are not anticipated as the current Salinas season comes to an end
    • Huron harvests are expected to start in mid- to late October
    • The Arizona and California desert season will start in early to mid-November
