Markon Cooperative BB #:123315 released this onion market update December 5, 2023:
Prices continue to increase as demand rises. Active markets are expected over the next six to eight weeks.
Markon First Crop (MFC) Onions are available out of storage from Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Colorado, and Washington.
Strong demand for white onions has pushed up prices and tightened supplies.
Orders are shifting into the more readily available yellow onions which is elevating those markets for all sizes and grades.
Expect markets to remain active into late January when the Mexican onion season is expected to begin.
Quality for all three colors remains excellent in the Pacific Northwest.
