Certified Noonday Sweet Onions
David Claiborne, a lifelong farmer and Vice President of the Noonday Sweet Onion
Growers Association has been producing onions for over 10 years, and says the Noonday
sweet onion was made famous over 40 years ago as area growers began marketing a
really sweet onion.
Customers returned to Noonday, Texas regularly to enjoy more of these delicious
treats. Soon a growers association was formed and the onion was certified and guaranteed
sweet with the trademark name of Noonday Sweet Onion. The annual onion festival
created competition between growers and the race was on to produce the absolute
sweetest onion possible.
Each summer, onion lovers flock to farmers markets and roadside stands near Noonday,
Texas to enjoy the sweet flavor of the Noonday sweet onion. But now, you can have
these East Texas treats shipped right to your front door!
