Markon First Crop (MFC) Red and Yellow Onion harvesting has been completed. MFC Onions are being shipped out of storage from Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington.   

  • Yellow onion size continues to be dominated by mediums; however, growers report the profile has increased in the later lots being harvested
  • A significant price gap of $7.00 to $9.00 remains between medium and jumbo sizes
  • MFC Red and Yellow Onion quality is excellent:
    • Supplies possess solid, globe-like shape and firm texture
      • Yellow onions have golden, cured skins
      • Red onion skin is setting nicely with a few paper layers
  • Packer label onions are also being shipped out of Colorado
