Lettuce takes over on Produce Market Guide

Lettuce takes over on Produce Market Guide

Oranges were once again knocked out of the No. 1 spot on Produce Market Guide, this time by lettuce, which moved up two slots from the previous week to take the lead the week of Nov. 25. Sweet potatoes were bumped down to No. 3 by oranges, and apples held steady at No. 4. Pummelos jumped from the No. 12 position to round out the top 5. 

The Produce Market Guide platform connects produce buyers and sellers. Below, find the top 20 searched commodities on Produce Market Guide during the week of Nov. 25.

Tomatoes rejoined the list at No. 6, and romaine, on everyone's minds because of a recall, moved up to No. 7 from No. 14 the previous week. Mangoes, cucumbers and dragon fruit rounded out the top 10. 

Fall and winter favorites dominated the lower half of the board, with beets at No. 11, Brussels sprouts at No. 12, pomegranates at No. 13, and potatoes, turnips and broccoli at No. 15, 16, and 17. Avocados fell from No. 4 the previous week to No. 14. Radishes rejoined the list at No. 18, and watermelon and chili peppers rounded out the top 20.
