Not only do I live in Southern California, but I am surrounded by one of the largest agricultural areas in the state, so I pass by numerous produce stands whenever I go to and from home, and their prices are normally 40% to 60% below the supermarket prices. I purchase red or green curly letuce or romaine lettuce, just ripped out of the gorund that morning, for 79 cents a head at a produce stand, while Von's (Safeway) or Ralph's (Kroeger) wants $1.49, and it's usually not even local produce, so it could conceiveably be up to a week old.

Fridge, taking them out an hour or so before I need them. In the winter I may leave them out because I've got a very cold (temperature-wise, not personality-wise) kitchen. If you nuke to make them easier to juice (and I do), pierce them with a fork or paring knife a couple of times first. Ditto Limes.
