Supplies of organic tender leaf items are extremely limited. Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) availability is limited; packer label and conventional product will be substituted as needed to fill orders.

Organic Arugula

  • Cooler temperatures in the desert region slowed plant maturity and reduced yields; suppliers were forced to cut ahead of schedule, reducing availability at the end of the season
  • Recent heat spike will lead to bolting and yellowing of leaves
  • Expect extremely tight supplies and elevated prices for the next two weeks as a few growers have experienced complete crop failure
  • Packer label and conventional product is being substituted when needed

Organic Spinach

  • Expect tight supplies and high prices for the next two weeks
  • Larger size spinach, such as clipped/stemless/teen varieties, sizing has drastically reduced
  • Packer label, conventional, and baby spinach may be substituted as needed

Organic Spring Mix

  • Expect tight supplies and elevated markets for the next two weeks
  • Most suppliers are holding to averages; packer label, conventional supplies, and different varieties are being substituted as needed
