Gordon Food Service Marketplace (GFS) opened a new store on Brandon Boulevard this week, and I went to see how this restaurant- and catering supply-store stacks up.
It offers by-the-bushel, fresh produce. I found large, delicious-looking strawberries in four-pound containers for only $6.99. Now I consider that a decent price.
Individual and by-the-case produce quantities are available to GFS shoppers, as are meats, seafood, dairy and bakery items — a great option for large gatherings or big families.
The store also has a large variety of disposable trays that you don't usually find in regular stores. Unlike other stores that sell in bulk, GFS doesn't charge a membership fee.
