UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE MARKETS

September 16, 2021

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
