We usually do our shopping at Mega or Chedraui with an occasional stop at Sam's.  While I am amazed at the variety of items they now stock, I am not impressed with the produce as it does not seem very fresh.  In general, I think the produce at Chedraui is better than Mega.  Where is the best place for fresh fruit and vegetables?  We stopped in at Europea yesterday and will be going back there as well. They do have a plentiful selection of wine at good prices.  They also carry many selections of imported foods (olive oil, canned goods) at decent prices.  They had fresh baguettes that looked very good as well as a good selection of cheeses.

"fresh produce" comes in to the stores on Wed's, usually.

 

Sam's produce is aged, and I never buy anything from them if I want fresh.

 

The Mercado is also a waste of time for produce.  Fish, chicken fine.

 

The fresh baked breads are great any place you buy it!

I prefer Sorianna in Ave 30.  They always seem to have nice looking produce.  I do often find some good things at the mercado, but better at Sorianna.

I have found the best to be at Maharaja on 65. I still struggle with Mega and Chedraui, though I don't know why. It's kind of hit or miss.

Europea is on the corner of 11 and Melgar.  Next door to Mega.

 

I agree with Kandy on Maharaja on 65, they have the BEST carrots in the world.  They also have fresh diced fruit to go, and make really good  sandwiches.
