Iceberg markets have peaked and are inching down. Green leaf and romaine prices continue to decline.


  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Iceberg Lettuce is available; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed due to low weights
  • Demand is weaker than prior weeks due to market fatigue
  • This week’s warm weather will promote growth in the Salinas Valley
  • Quality is good although head density and weights fluctuate throughout the fields
  • Markets are expected to be slightly lower, at elevated levels, for the next 7-10 days before decreasing significantly as supplies rebound

Green Leaf and Romaine

  • MFC Premium Green Leaf and Romaine Lettuces are available
  • Quality is very good; insect pressure and wind damage are being reported in some lots but are being removed at harvest
  • Green leaf markets prices are approaching the bottom
  • Romaine prices are expected to continue falling into June
