UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE MARKETS

September 3, 2021

Green leaf prices are steady at lower levels. Iceberg and romaine markets are higher.

  • 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 yields and carton weights have fallen; inconsistent weather has impacted quality and hindered growth
  • Quality is good: fringe burn, internal burn, mildew pressure, and seeder are more prevalent than in recent weeks
  • Expect higher iceberg and romaine prices for the next two to three weeks; green leaf pricing will remain fairly steady
