Northwest onion and potato suppliers will be operating on limited hours through Christmas and New Year’s Eve and closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

  • All potato and onions suppliers will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day
  • Shippers will be operating with regular loading hours on the Fridays leading up to the holidays, December 23 and December 30
  • On Saturday, December 24 and December 31 onion and potato sheds will be closed; this is unlike normal loading hours
  • Most sheds will be closed on Monday, December 26 and January 2 in observance of the holidays; this is also different than normal loading schedules
  • Advanced order lead time is highly recommended for order fulfillment
  • Carriers are strongly advised to call packing sheds in advance for product availability and loading appointments
  • Adverse weather is forecast in much of the Northwest the next few weeks, which will affect outbound trucks
  • Also important to note: Tuesday, December 27 and January 3 will be very slow loading days as suppliers will not produce over the holiday weekends
