Herb help?

I grow most of the herbs I use regularly in my garden at this time is year. I use dried the rest of the year. I have a new recipe that calls for cilantro. I don't grow it, so I bought some at the market. How do I keep them fresh until I use them? To my mind, they were wilted already!

TIA

I would treat it just like parsley. First, I use scissors to cut a small amount off of the bottom stems. Then I fill a coffee mug with about 2 inches of water, put the stems down in water and store in refer. You can also put a plastic bag very loosely over the top but I rarely do this.

I would NOT have thought of that! I gave plenty of cups.
