Green Bean & Lettuce Market Update

Green Bean & Lettuce Market Alert


October 24, 2022

To Our Customers,

The availability of green beans and lettuce varieties of romaine, green leaf, and iceberg are anticipated to remain in short supply over the upcoming several weeks due to disease and weather issues impacting crops.


The lettuce supply shortage is due primarily to fungal disease (see images below). Available produce may have subpar quality including browning/discoloration or accelerated breakdown/decay. We expect the lettuce market to improve within three weeks. Until supply returns to normal, pricing will remain higher than usual.






The green bean supply shortage is due to crops being impacted by excessive rains causing the flooding of fields of mature crops and the delay of crop planting in other markets. We expect better green bean markets within two weeks. 


Our online ordering system will suggest substitution alternatives to help you in deciding how to best adjust until markets return to normal. We are very grateful for your understanding and cooperation as we work through Mother Nature’s unpredictability.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Service team at 225-272-8153, or your salesperson.
