Recourse for bad farmer's market produce?

ILoveBacon | Jun 20, 2011 01:54 PM

On Saturday morning, I went to the Waverly farmer's market, where I picked up a lot of great produce, including 2 quarts of strawberries. Everything was handled gently and transported in my air conditioned car to my air conditioned house. So imagine my dismay a couple of hours later, when I discover that well over half of the strawberries are rotten, bad and/or fermented.

If I were to buy strawberries from Giant and discovered that the ones on top were fine but everything below was bad, I would march that container right back and request a refund/exchange in a heartbeat. But what is the "right" thing to do in this case? I would love some feedback regarding this matter. Thanks!
