Markon First Crop Onions are being shipped out of storage from Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Mexican yellow and white onions will begin to cross into South Texas next week.

South Texas

  • Mexican onion size will be on the smaller side, dominated by medium and jumbo sizes; colossal and super colossal sizes will be limited
  • Mexican red onion imports will hit the market the week of January 30
  • Pricing will open up slightly higher than Northwest markets
  • The domestic Texas onion crop is on track to begin in early March


  • Expect supplies to remain available in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington through mid-April
  • In Utah, stocks will ship through mid-March
  • Colorado packer label onions will be available through early March
  • With Mexican onions now available, expect Northwest and Colorado pricing to ease over the next few weeks
