Fivi Market

When we moved to District 7 we were quite happy to have the Fivi market next to us, mainly because of it's large selection of kind of international brands. I like the frozen fishcakes, the Kettle Chips, they even have Haribo and Beef Jerky. Everything is fine at Fivi Market as long as its packed or canned.

The fresh goods are a nightmare. Whenever I bought some vegetables, after one day they were already rotten. Same for fruits: I bought some sliced pomelo on Saturday, today it was moldy. Fresh milk gets curd after one day too. I think the problem is that they don't keep their products cool the whole production chain. The way from the producer to the supermarket can be long, and the vegetables can already start to decay. This process is normally invisible in the first stage, and will be interrupted when the goods are cooled for a while. But the minute you take them out of the market, the process will go on.

Oh, by the way, I bought last Saturday expensive sausage at Veggies, it was packed 29.7. and started already changing the color. So its not just a Fivi problem.
