Since my fantastic yet controversial local Organic market (Healthy Pleasures) left my neighborhood apparently due to a lease dispute I’ve been forced to explore other grocery outlets. Hollie recommended Freshdirect and I broke down and tried it.
Here is the text of my feedback to customer service:
1) The mixed fruit salad is not very fresh. This is Manhattan, I can get fresh fruit seven different ways on every street corner so the standard is high. I would prefer to get higher quality, ideally organic mixed fruit selections. Throw some surprises too. Some papaya, kiwis perhaps, mangos maybe, more berries please.
2) I ordered a pre-made salmon w/ cajon spices. It was tasty and fresh except the middle was completely uncooked. I managed to finish cooking it, but that’s basically cooking which is what I didn’t want to do and why I bought pre-cooked dinners.
3) I find the boxes you pack everything in to be extraordinarily wasteful. One piece of cheese in a box big enough to hold three VCRs can’t be efficient. Why not adopt reusable, heavy-duty plastic containers like Homeruns used to use?
