As fall gets underway, pumpkins remain No. 1 on Produce Market Guide — no surprise there — while chili peppers regained the No. 2 spot the week of Sept. 23, and lettuce shot from No. 12 to No. 3. Pears held steady at No. 4, while apples slipped to No. 5.
Sweet potatoes rejoined the list at No. 6, while figs slipped to No. 10. Broccoli, beets and strawberries also made reappearances, at No. 12, No. 14 and No. 15, respectively. Fall and winter favorite pomegranates appeared on the list for the first time in the the No. 20 spot.
