California onion season winds down, Northwest ramps up

Supplies of onions from California's San Joaquin Valley are winding down, and as those supplies transition out, supplies out of the Pacific Northwest are increasing. An abundance of smaller sizes has made for lower prices on those types of onions.

“It got hot out in the Pacific Northwest and stunted some of the crop,” said Bill Hagins of Pajaro Valley Fresh Fruits and Vegetables. “So there seems to be a lot of smaller product at the moment.” Out of California, Hagins said he's seen prices around $7.00 and $8.00 for sacks of jumbo sizes. On September 9, prices for a sack of yellow super colossal onions were between $12.00 and $14.00 out of Oregon and Idaho, and prices for a sack of white jumbos were between $13.00 and $14.00.

“I do think the market will stabilize at this point,” said Hagins. “Especially with the Northwest going into storage and ahead by about 700 loads, they have a good amount on the front end.” Demand has been moderate, so Hagins believes things will remain stable at least into October.

“We'll see things escalate later on,” said Hagins. “It usually happens around October or November, when you get closer to the holidays because there's always a pull for the holidays.”
