UPDATE: Idaho Potatoes

October 30, 2018

The 2018 Idaho potato harvest is complete. Carton prices are expected to increase, but will decline as November progresses when more retail bags are produced for Thanksgiving.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Norkotah Potatoes are readily available
  • MFC Burbank Potatoes will begin shipping from storage the week of November 5
  • Strong demand for the Thanksgiving holiday typically begins in early November, decreasing carton prices, as foodservice cartons are a by-product of retail supplies
  • Storage crop Idaho White Russet potatoes will not be available until the first week of January
