New crop, fresh-run MFC Norkotah Potatoes are available in Idaho and Washington. Expect the market to ease for the next few weeks.

New Crop Potatoes

  • Idaho: early pack-outs are dominated by 80- to 100-count sizes
  • Washington: early season volume is dominated by 50- to 70-count potatoes
  • Texas:
    • Limited quantities are now being gathered
    • Early harvests are inadequate in size
  • U.S. No. 2 production will be extremely limited, as potatoes that would normally meet No. 1 grade are being packed to meet demand for No. 2 grade orders
    • No. 2 supplies will increase once potatoes are shipped out of storage
    • Pricing will remain firm until that time
  • Colorado and Wisconsin harvests will begin in September
