Iceberg markets continue to decline steadily.

Salinas, California

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Premium Iceberg Lettuce is available; Markon Best Available (MBA) is being substituted sporadically due to low weights
  • Quality is very good; some fields are uneven in density and size, but heads are being sorted in the fields
  • Heatwave conditions bring the possibility of increased quality concerns including
    • Growth cracks
    • Fluctuating head density
    • Sun scalding on outer leaves

Other Regions

  • Supplies have been limited in Central Mexico due to extended periods of dry, hot weather; recent cooling and rains have improved the short-term outlook
  • Regionally available product from across the U.S. including Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Eastern Canada will enter the market throughout July, supplementing industry availability and further easing prices
  • Expect markets to continue at low and steady levels through July
