Onion prices are rising; demand for Mexican exports is strong. Markets are expected to remain active over the next four to six weeks until Mexico begins shipping onions into Texas in late January/early February.

  • Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions are available out of storage from Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Colorado, and Washington
  • White onion supplies are scarce throughout the industry; demand is shifting to jumbo yellow stocks, pushing up prices for all yellow sizes
  • Red onion markets are holding steady
  • Pacific Northwest quality is very good; defects are minimal
  • Mexican-grown onions are expected to begin crossing into South Texas by late January/early February
