What is a good way to display lettuces, and other leafy greens, in the summer, in the Nevada desert??

Congrats for having greens in the summer!
Pick, hydro cool, spin, pack in bags in coolers with ice of some kind on bottom. At market open the cooler and rotate the bags occasionally.
Or for head lettuces, pull with root, wash well in cold water, pack in coolers, at market put in a shallow tub with water and add frozen water bottles or ice.
