The Worst Day Of The Week To Get Fresh Fruit At The Grocery Store

To ensure you're getting the best quality fresh fruit possible, you'll want to avoid shopping for produce on Sunday.

Sunday is the worst day to shop for fresh fruit and vegetables at the supermarket because distributors do not deliver to stores on Sundays.

Everything will be at least one day old and picked through by shoppers. Produce shipments usually take one day to get restocked, so avoid shopping early on Mondays as well.

Ask your grocery store when it restocks its fruit to get the freshest produce. If Sunday is your only available day to shop, consider searching for a farmers’ market in your area.
