Green leafy vegetables are sprinkled with water on them at the

market so they can still be fresh because if you don't put a little

water on them then they will dry and get old and nobody will buy

them. That's why.

So they won't wilt and be unsightly or loose value

Green leafty vegetables are sprinkled with water at the

supermarket because water helps move nutrients and other

substances. It also prevents the leaves from drying out because

water absorbs heat more slowly.
