LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Mexican Green Onions

Watch a Markon Live from the Fields video about Mexican green onion operations in the Mexicali Valley.

  • Green onion production involves vast amounts of skilled labor
  • Over 500 workers were present in a field that a group of Markon member representatives recently visited with our supplier, Church Brothers
  • The post-harvest steps of bunching, trimming, and packing green onions into totes is very tedious
  • After the onions are prepped, they are sent to the processing facility to be cooled, washed, and packaged into various Ready-Set-Serve packs
  • Approximately 70,000 pounds of green onions per day can be produced out of one field
  • The current quality of green onions is very good; supplies are ample
