After researching three local supermarket chains, we can offer the following guidance:
Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Watermelon, Pineapple – Some stores cut their own, while others purchase it pre-sliced from a regional company (Star-K certified). Either way, it may be purchased from the supermarket produce department.
Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Broccoli, Cauliflower – These items cannot be used as is, as they would require proper checking for insects.
Diced Yellow Onions, Diced Red Onions, Diced Celery, Sliced Tri-Color Peppers, Jicama Sticks, Celery Sticks, Carrot Sticks, Mango – These items are available at Heinens prepackaged bearing a Star-K.
