The Northwest storage onion supply continues to diminish. Fresh-run, Texas-grown onion yields have been hampered by recent rains. California onions will hit the market the week of April 24.

Storage Crop

  • Idaho/Oregon-grown Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions are expected to be available through the week of April 24
    • Supply will be extremely limited the week of the April 24, as it will be the last week of the season
    • Red and yellow onion stocks are adequate; white onion supplies will be sporadic
  • Washington-grown MFC Onions will ship through the end of April  
    • Like Idaho/Oregon, sufficient supplies of red and yellow onions are available; white onion volume is tapering off
  • Although stocks are tightening, pricing remains steady
