Abstract : Abstract. This research included a microbial survey for some vegetables crops that are eaten fresh (coriander, parsley, lettuce, green onion and cress) in three locations in Jeddah city (vegetable square, superstores, small vegetable shops). Sampling was done monthly for three months. Microbial densities, total viable coliforms and Listeria monocytogenes counts were determined. It has been found that the least contaminated vegetables came from vegetable square. Whereas, the highest contaminated were from the small vegetable shops. According to the obtained data, it is recommended to buy vegetables from places with less contamination levels and attention must be paid to good washing practices with clean running water and use of vinegar or lemon juice as an additional process to washing.
