What foods do I keep on the counter?Jul 7, 2014 Garlic, onions and shallots can be stored on the counter for up to two weeks. Tomatoes, potatoes and winter squash should also be kept in a cool and dry place, instead of the fridge. The right place to keep bananas, citrus and melons is the counter, as well (but, once they are cut, they must be stored in the refrigerator or they will begin to dry out). Bread, cakes and pies must also be kept at the counter (wrap them in plastic after one or two days) for a few days and then moved to the fridge.
