UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE
May 06, 2021
Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets remain depressed. An abundance of supply and weak demand is pushing prices slightly lower.
Demand is weak following the Mother’s Day holiday pull; supplies far exceed demand
Field weights in Salinas, California have increased
Markon First Crop Premium Iceberg Lettuce is being packed consistently
Quality is very good: minor internal burn, sunscald, and wind damage are present in some lots
New Mexico production has started; harvesting in Colorado and on the East Coast of Canada and the United States will begin in July
Expect low prices over the next two to three weeks at minimum
Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
