The Northwest storage onion season continues to wind down. Sufficient supplies of Texas-grown onions are available.


  • Idaho/Oregon-grown Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions will be depleted by April 15
  • MFC Washington Onions will ship through the end of April
  • Markets have eased as demand has shifted to new crop onions
  • Please note that quality has deteriorated in remaining supplies; internal defects such as translucency, as well as dry and watery scale, are common


  • Texas-grown MFC Red and Yellow Onions are readily available
  • The Mexican onion season will wrap up by early next week
  • Texas onion pricing will increase with the Mexico season wrapping up; the end of the Idaho/Oregon season will also boost Texas onion demand
  • Fresh-run onions will have feathery skins and light color/exterior compared to Northwest storage onions
