Check they are crisp and firm
Carrots, poteto, tomatoes, onion and most of the vegatables should be really firm when they are fresh. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage,  leafs should be crisp, it is mainly because they are fully with water, and they did not dried out during the travel. Make sure the flowers (broccoli) are not fully opened, and they have deep green color.
