Is it ac­cept­able to check the ripeness of fruit at a French mar­ket stall be­fore buy­ing?

Living France - - DÉCOUVREZ -

Lau­ren Clary I go to the same stalls ev­ery week and I of­ten se­lect what I want – with­out dam­ag­ing the pro­duce of course! In any case, I’d def­i­nitely ask if it was my first time at a stall.

Alex Wil­liams I re­cently be­gan vis­it­ing a lo­cal mar­ket in the Co­tentin area and the stall­holder al­ways asks when we plan to eat things like avocados or fruit that needs to fin­ish ripen­ing. He se­lects spec­i­mens that will be ready at the right time and he’s al­ways been right.

Tif­fany Li Of course we should se­lect, but not dam­age the pro­duce, just check if it is good qual­ity. Still, bet­ter to ask first.
