Is anyone else having issues with produce in their area? We are having one hell of a time finding anywhere that doesn't sell rotting produce right off their racks. For example, just yesterday we bought some grapes and carrots from our beloved Costco. I pull them out of the fridge to eat with some Tilamoook extra sharp aged cheddar cheese (ohh baby) only to find that 90% of the grapes are rotten. Are you kidding me?!?!?!  We bought them YESTERDAY which means they were rotten in the store.

This wouldn't bother us so much had it not been an issue for a few months now. We used to buy our produce from Walmart, until we became frustrated with onions and potatoes already having things growing out of them in the store. How old does a potatoe have to be to get to that point to begin with? We naturally transitioned to the actual supermarkets, where we were willing to pay a premium for quality. However, on the last shopping trip their bell peppers and cucumbers were going bad. WHY??!?!?!

I am well aware that produce is shipped from god knows where these days, but that's no excuse for selling your customers pure crap. Take a look around and you will see the rotting produce. The thing that gets me is the worker, sitting there stocking the stuff, rotating crappy rotten produce to the front! Really? Is this what we've come to?
