Popular purple tubers and other purple produce are in demand for holiday feasts
Los Alamitos, CA (November 2017) – Everyone is looking for these Instagram-famous Stokes Purple® sweet potatoes for their fall feasts. Draw shoppers in to your produce department with a big, beautiful sweet potato display featuring these purple-skinned tubers.
“Our retail partners say the best time of year to promote Stokes Purple® sweet potatoes is the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving,” said Alex Jackson Berkley, senior account manager at Frieda’s Specialty Produce. “With sweet potatoes remaining a trendy and staple produce item, and shoppers looking to add color to the Thanksgiving table, Stokes Purple® sweet potatoes will sell out for the holiday.
“Conventional Stokes Purple® sweet potatoes can be merchandised with other sweet potatoes, and the organic ones can be in the organic section,” said Berkley. “Purple deserves a place at the holiday table.” Add purple cauliflower, purple asparagus, baby purple potatoes, and radicchio to round out the holiday purple vegetable set.
