    I wish she had called me about replacements. One of the items was sugar, they might not have had the exact brand/type I was looking for, but they certainly had sugar at the store. The other was a salad that was going to be lunch for me since I was stranded in the loop, I'm sure they had some other salad there.

    Items in stock but missing from delivery. No response from Mercato online help. Telephone call today answered, and I am told I will receive a refund.

    Love Local Foods and their products. It can be dicey having someone else pick out your produce - particularly avocados and tomatoes - but so far, so good. My only complaint is that nobody called me to replace some of the meats that were not in stock. The main reason I order from Local Foods is for the Butcher & Larder items so I definitely would have replaced the steak & sausages that were out of stock with something similar if someone had just called me!
