UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE MARKETS

September 13, 2021

Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine prices continue to rise. Iceberg and romaine markets are higher than average; expect the same for green leaf.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf and Romaine are available
  • MFC Premium Iceberg is sporadic; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed
  • Salinas Valley and Santa Maria, California yields and carton weights have fallen; inconsistent weather has impacted quality and hindered growth
  • Quality issues such as fringe burn, internal burn, mildew pressure, and seeder are expected to become more prevalent in the weeks ahead, which will result in increased shipments of MBA
  • Supplies are sufficiently meeting current demand
  • Expect prices to continue inching up; markets will be elevated for the next two to three weeks
