Little Difference #6 - Buying Produce
In the grocery stores here (and all of Europe, I think) you must get your produce items weighed in the produce department before you check out. Many produce items are sold by the unit not the weight so those can be popped right into your grocery cart. But things sold by weight, must be weighed and priced first. There is a little station set up in the produce department with a clerk and a few scales. You just place your bag down on the scale, the clerk types the code, places the UPC sticker on your bag, and then you plop it into your cart and go on your merry way.
