UPDATE: Green Onions

September 18, 2015


The green onion market is rising; supplies are tight.


  • Last week’s high temperatures and rains from Hurricane Linda have dramatically slowed production and reduced yields
  • Hot weather during planting in the Mexicali/San Luis growing region in Mexico also reduced yields, contributing to the shortages
  • Sun burn at the tips of the green onions is being caused by the extreme heat
  • Prices for iced 48-count green onions are in the low to mid-20s
  • Expect tight supplies and elevated markets for the next five to seven days
  • Ready-Set-Serve Green Onions are available
