Fairway Produce

I'm disenchanted w/Fairway's produce. I always go planning to buy lettuce, but the mixed greens at the front are often slimy—the bulk ones and the ones in bags. The tomatoes (except the pre-packaged plum/grape tomatoes) are always underwhelming and really expensive. Last time, the broccoli was soft and droopy and generally, there's just not that much interesting there. I wonder if they have some storage problem or if there's just not enough turnover. Unless I'm remembering it in an unrealistically rosy way, the produce at the Upper West Side store is much much better. Does anybody else feel this way?

I guess I'm falling out of love.... though the cheese and fish depts still make me happy.
