Jack sees the remnants of many food production businesses while traveling through the Farmer's Market and other parts of Rapture. Conspicuously absent though is any mention of Vine Ripe. All that he encounters are a few advertisements seen around the city. Neon signs promoting Vine Ripe can be seen on buildings during Jack's descent into the city via Bathysphere. Later on, in Apollo Square, the same marquee can be seen in the transit tunnel to Hestia Chambers.
