Any type of sweet onion like a Walla Walla, or Texas Sweet.
You should be able to find some type of sweet onion in a supermarket...they pretty much have some good storage techniques now. You can recognized sweet onions if they aren't labeled as such by a very thin almost tissue paper like skin, instead of the parchment paper skin on high sulfur onions.

I agree with Sam. Walla Walla, Maui etc. would be a fine substitute for Vidalia. But they are most surely labeled because it's a selling point at the market. They'll cost at least .50 cents per pound more than brown aka Spanish onions.
