Markon First Crop Onions are being shipped out of storage from Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Packer label onions are being shipped out of Colorado.


  • Onion quality is excellent; supplies possess solid, globe-like shape, and firm texture
  • Expect supplies to remain available in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington through mid-April
  • In Utah, stocks will ship through mid-March
  • Colorado onions will be available through early March
  • A price increase typically develops at this point in the season, as suppliers assess remaining storage stocks; however, demand has been weak due to adverse weather across the country that has kept prices level

Other Regions

  • Mexican yellow and white onions are expected to start crossing into south Texas at the end of January
  • The Texas season is on track to begin in early March
  • California/Imperial Valley onions are estimated to start shipping in late April
  • The New Mexico season is forecast to begin in early June
