FOOD: Let the Fresh Direct Debates Begin!

There is a lot of chatter these days about how and where New Yorkers buy their food: how Whole Foods is taking over the city, how the corner D’Agostino smells bad, and of course, Fresh Direct.

  • Some say FD has made them cook at home much more.

  • Some say FD uses too much packaging and leaves their trucks idling all over the city.

  • Some say logging on for groceries helps them organize their shopping, saves them time and money, and helps them eat healthier meals.

  • Some mourn the further disconnection FD has created between consumers and their food.

We have to say we find ourselves extremely skeptical of Fresh Direct, but are willing to withhold judgement until we’ve heard more. skgr
