Holland Farms muffins if you DON'T check them almost ALL THE TIME are at least 2 days old. Now this has nothing to do with the bathroom issue people. I agree that if you want a quality salad go to Hapanowicz Brothers. Quality has gone down hill at Holland Farms and the prices have sky rocketed.

I went there once a long time ago and never thought there was any reason to go back again. There is nothing special about Holland Farms that you can't get somewhere else. I can't understand why so many local Uticans think it is special. Utica people are easily impressed by the mediocre.

Not going back? Good. Skip the pastries and workout instead. You'll be healthier, feel better, and quit complaining about things beyond your control. Get Direct TV.

You people are all insane. An arguement about using the bathroom. First off let the kid use the bathroom. I don't think the bathroom police are lurking by the jelly buns just in case this situation comes up.
I also agree about with MV people going way overboard about certain places. ie. Here, Haps in the mills, polish market on lenox, and especially Voss's. Why do people stand in the rain 1 foot from oriskany blvd to eat here. I am not knocking them in anyway I hear good things about them just don't eat that food, but can't you just go back when it is not raining instead of looking like a herd of cattle standing in line.

Is the bathroom in the front of the store, or in the back? If it's in the back, could the little snotmonkey contaminate food that was being prepared or maybe have contact with machinery? Something to consider.

Wrong dining establsihments must have a bathroom available to customers, at least a sink where you can wash your hands. There is no such thing as a private br in that environment.
This is only for a "sit down" establishment that seats a certain number of customers.

You made a very good point, I hadn't thought of that.

They could have let a 4 year old use their restroom. Why are people defending their behavior? I bought a couple of brownies there the other day and they tasted horrible. We ended up throwing them out. This bathroom thing just sealed it for me, done with them.

We came in just before HF closed. They had a bunch of muffins, cookies, etc wrapped. We asked if we could buy them at a discount since they were closing. We were told no b/c they 'donate' them.

First off, their costomer service is lacking. If you go in later in the evening, clerks act like your a bother. Too busy talking, they hate when you interupt their conversation. Besides the food isn't that good, and way over priced.

Here's a way to solve all those folks that don't like Holland Farms and get them to quit their bitching and shut the hell up for once;

DON'T GO TO HOLLAND FARMS ANYMORE!

Nobody is putting a gun to your head to keep going there. Geez....

I only go there knowing they don't have public bathrooms. People who use non-public restrooms only make a mess of them and are not sanitary to allow where food is made.

Use your own Fking bathrooms.

Would you let anyone off the street come in your fking house to use your bathroom? beotches

Someone simply is pissed because their kid peed or crapped his drawers and because HF doesn't have a public restroom, she is going to boycott a business. Not really fair to diss a great place of business because your brat isn't house broken. Cancelling a food order was downright wrong, although the food is of a quality that someone else surely purchased it. I hope that the party was a success with take out Little Ceasar's and kool aid. Ya cancelled GOOD food due to ignorance and wrongly placed blame. Get a life. If the kid isn't housebroken, put a damn diaper on him when ya go out.

Marilyn will sell those OLD MUFFINS and other baked goods the next day and THAT is a fact. Makes you wonder why the baked goods and not selling.
