Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Organic produce, individually wrapped in plastic. Each potato – of precisely the same weight, which is kind of weird in its own way – wrapped in its own plastic cocoon (with instructions that the plastic should remain in place while the spud is microwaved, also weird**), perched here in the high-rent zone of the produce area. There is almost no way to talk about this without using expletives, which is why this is such a short post.

The sweet potatoes in the photo above are distributed by Veg-Fresh Farms, Corona, CA 92880. If you wanted to share your thoughts about this particular product, you can reach them at https://vegfresh.com/contact-us/
