UPDATE: ONIONS

January 6, 2022

Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions continue to ship out of the Northwest. As late season supply concerns persist, suppliers will increase markets to extend storage stocks.

  • Northwest MFC Onions will be available through late April
    • Dry scale and translucent layers will begin to challenge pack-outs as April approaches
    • Expect elevated prices for the rest of the season
  • Mexican onions will start entering the U.S. (into South Texas) by late January
    • With the Northwest markets at all-time highs, Mexican onion prices are expected to follow suit
    • White and yellow onions will enter the U.S. first
    • Red onions will be available by mid-February; volume will be low
  • Texas-grown onions will enter the market in early March
  • California/Imperial Valley onions are estimated to start shipping in late April
  • The New Mexico season will begin in early June
