Do they have good produce at Aldi? Because I was just thinking today that my local Stop & Shop may have the worst produce on earth.

It depends on how much the manager(s) give a shit about handling it properly, but by and large, yes.

I love Aldi, my wife converted me. The produce is one of their weaker aspects, but it might depend on country as well.

Aldi is awesome but their produce is horrible at least for the 2 nearest to me.

Most things are actually pretty good at ours. They just don't have as many products to choose from.

My Aldi has consistently good produce. Certain things like strawberries and cucumbers seem to spoil quickly, but that seems to be true of other store's produce too. Lately I've found the overall quality of produce to be lacking across multiple grocery chains tho. I'm assuming supply chain issues.

The bigger issue with Aldi's produce is that you usually can't buy just one lemon or something because they're sold in bags. So you aren't getting to handpick and you might have to buy more than you will use. I've just started freezing my extra lemons and repackaging certain items into glass containers when I put groceries away.

Around me anyway the produce used to suck, now not so much. The prices are fantastic, but the quality isn’t quite amazing. Some things are still great though.
