How Do You Store Raspberries Short-Term?

monavano | Jun 24, 200909:05 AM     21

I know how to freeze delicate berries like raspberries(place on sheet pan lined with parchment and freeze-then store in baggies).
I had 2 beautiful boxes of raspberries from the farmers market go bad overnight on my counter recently. I was incredibly bummed.
So, my question is-how do you store raspberries short term? When left out on the counter, they seem to develop mold very quickly.
Do you store them in their market box? Do you spread them out because they're so delicate? How long do you leave them out? Do you place them in the fridge immediately? Do you cover them? Store in tupperware or the like? Place a paper towel in the container?

Thanks all!!
