Why are fresh fruits and vegetables sprinkled with water in produce markets?

0

Fruits and vegetables in produce markets are sprinkled with water for a number of reasons. Firstly, vegetables such as carrots and celery will dry out when they are stored in the open air, so the water helps keep them fresher longer. Secondly, the water makes the fruits and vegetables more appealing to the eye, making the consumer more likely to buy them.
