Iceberg and romaine markets have peaked, and are poised to decrease into next week. Green leaf markets are steady at low levels.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Green Leaf is available
  • MFC Premium Iceberg and Romaine are sporadic; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted as needed
  • Salinas Valley yields and carton weights have improved from recent weeks, but remain lighter than normal due to variable weather patterns
  • Quality is good: limited amounts of fringe burn, internal burn, mildew pressure, and seeder are being detected at the field level
  • Iceberg markets are anticipated to decline at a more rapid pace than romaine over the next 7 to 10 days; green leaf pricing will remain fairly steady
