Romaine prices are falling as quality improves and yields increase. Green leaf and iceberg markets are slightly lower as supplies slowly increase.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are available; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed due to low weights
  • Recent favorable weather, following light rain at the end of last week, has promoted growth and improved quality
  • Disease pressure is still found in some lots, although at significantly reduced rates
  • Demand remains strong, but has weakened following the Mother’s Day holiday pull
  • Markets are expected to continue to ease into next week
