How do your groceries get to the grocery store? Have you ever wondered?
They come by semi, by box truck, in pink-and-white fully-wrapped PT Cruisers touting local cupcake businesses. And sometimes, grocery suppliers come in by foot, with plastic totes of freshly foraged mushrooms, hand-picked squash and still-warm-from-the-oven baguettes. Mornings are the busiest. Trucks pull up to the back (if in the suburbs) or to the front door (if in the city) with boxes of bananas and styrofoam coolers of salmon.
Diesel engines run while perishables are wheeled to their rightful storage areas. Packing slips are signed, and shortly after, another truck pulls up in the queue.
