at least what i am hearing for here in NY. hubby just picked up a tractor trailor load yesterday( and me running to syracuse picking up a free 50 pound bag hehehe).. he said there is a problem witht he crop this year with the centers being all nasty and black so fewer ae passing inspection. Right now they told him that bag costs over $19. come thanksgiving it will be upwards 40-50 bucks. I dont know how else onions work, if the grocery stores rebag into smaller bags.. these are 50 pound bags.. but this cant be good news!!! I thought id give you folks a heads up .
