The onion season is winding down in California’s Imperial Valley. New crop production is increasing in New Mexico.         


  • Many Southern California growers will wrap up operations for the season this weekend
    • Few sheds will pack onions next week
    • Although supplies have diminished, prices have eased due to New Mexico entering the market
  • Central and Northern California harvests will begin late next week
    • Sizing and availability are uncertain at this time
    • Rain that soaked the growing areas this past winter and early spring will impact yields

New Mexico

  • Yellow onion supplies are sufficient; red and white onions are tight as the season is just getting underway
  • Supplies will begin to ramp up next week
  • Markets opened high; expect prices to hold firm until Central and Northern California volume increases
