Northwest Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions are available. The California and New Mexico MFC Onion seasons are ending.

New Crop

  • MFC Onion growers in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington have begun harvesting
  • Colorado- and Utah-grown onions will hit the market after the Labor Day weekend
  • Healthy onion crops and strong yields are expected this upcoming storage season; weather has been excellent for growing up to this point

Summer Crop

  • In California, most growers have finished shipping for the season; a small number of sheds will continue to pack until the end of August
  • A few New Mexico shippers will have supply through the end of next week; most have concluded operations

Expect markets to ease over the next few weeks as the Northwest season begins to ramp up; production will be fully underway  the week of August 21.
