  • The heavy rains forecast for this weekend may end some South Texan onion suppliers’ seasons early, but those in Uvalde, Texas will ship through May
  • Limited supplies of MFC Yellow Onions will become available in New Mexico next week; MFC Red Onions will start the week of May 18
  • Fresh-run onions have feathery skins and light color when compared to Northwest storage onions
