A couple of days ago I mentioned Noon Day onions. They are a local product, grown no more than 10 miles outside of the town of Noon Day, Texas. They are smallish onions with super sweet flavor. The claim is that they are sweeter than Walla Walla or Vidala onions. I was able to get Noon Day onions last summer. We bought them at Mrs. Sides Pea Farm. Recently, I bought some Vidalia onions at the Dallas Farmers Market. They were great, but those Noon Day onions were better. Saying that, the onions I bought last summer were fresher and local. That probably makes all the difference in the taste. So this is really not about promoting my local onions, but encouraging you to go out and find locally grown produce. If you find a great onion, bonus!
