UPDATE: GREEN LEAF, ICEBERG, AND ROMAINE
June 14, 2021
Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine markets are rising due to strong demand.
Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine are available; Markon Best Available is being substituted as needed
Demand continues to strengthen weekly as COVID restrictions are removed; additionally, some buyers are loading as much product as possible prior to the upcoming heatwave in the Salinas Valley
Current quality is very good; although, growth crack, fringe burn, and internal burn are expected to become more prevalent following sustained elevated temperatures
Expect higher prices over the next two weeks at minimum
