Food here is for the most part fresh. There has been a time or two where the items were suspect, but what place isn’t like that? I’ve shopped at high end places where the produce and food items were rubbish, and just the same I have shopped at “less than high end” places where the items were better than in high end places.
I think with most places like this the freshness is dependent on when you go, the crop brought in, and how long the stuff has been sitting around. You can go to Trader Joe’s, Whole foods, or any of those “type” of places and find good and bad items.
It’s in the area, the products are for the most part reasonably priced, pretty fresh, so why not? Check it out if you are looking for produce in the Forest Hills area.
