Etiquette question: Returning fruit (peaches) to a farmer's market vendor

erica | Oct 4, 2008 04:02 AM

For about the fifth time this year, I have wasted money on mealy peaches at my local farmer's market (Union Square in NYC). Few days ago I spent $3. pound, a total of $4 for 4 peaches. Cut into one only to find it mealy and inedible. I am tempted to return the remaining 3!! I have had the same experience with different vendors this summer and, unfortunately, twice before with this particular vendor.

I know I should not be buying peaches so late in the season. But why is this well-regarded vendor even selling them? Surely they know that the quality is poor.

What would you all do, aside from refraining to purchase next time??
