I imagine they have 1 cup and 2 cup containers - I would think that they would have a volume stamped on the bottom - they usually have some by the salad bar. You could also just buy a container full of the veggies and measure them when you get home. Once you know how much it holds, you're set for the next time.

You don't have to tell them a weight of veggies, just have them fill the container. Take it home, dump the veggies out and figure out how many cups the container holds. Once you know that, say, the smallest container they have in the deli holds 1 cup, next time you order veggies in that size, you know you're getting one cup. You're really complicating something pretty simple. It's not an exact science - if you have some leftover veggies, just eat them!
