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!
