Fresh-run Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions are being shipped out of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

  • Rain has delayed the first week of harvesting in Utah; onions shipped out of Utah will be product hauled from Washington this week
  • New crop onion quality is excellent
    • Jumbo onions are most plentiful
    • Colossal and super colossal supplies are sufficient
  • Growers will begin to pack and ship onions out of storage in early October
  • Expect markets to hold steady through the month of September
  • New crop onions have a rounder, more globe-like shape than supplies shipped during the summer months; early season supplies will still exhibit thin, light-colored skins until shipped out of storage
