UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE

November 18, 2021

Iceberg prices are falling. Green leaf and romaine markets are slightly lower.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Iceberg is sporadic due to low weights; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed
  • MFC Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are available
  • Arizona and California desert production continues to ramp up; supplies have significantly improved from prior weeks
  • Demand has been elevated for the Thanksgiving holiday but is subsiding this week, further pushing down prices
  • Overall quality is very good: mildew pressure and fringe burn is present in some lots
  • Expect markets to continue easing as desert production increases
