"Today, many types of produce travel from the field, to the distributor, to Safeway's product distribution centers and to the final store location in RPCs."
If produce aged well as a good Single Malt, I'd buy produce in grocery stores all the time.
But I think I'll continue getting it from the Farmer's Market.
