Welcome to Earl's Organic Produce.

Earl's Organic Produce is the sole 100% certified organic handler located on the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market. We're passionate about organic produce, our growers, and our customers. That simple fact has made us the leading regional distributor of premium organic produce.

Since 1988 we've partnered with growers of all sizes across California, the Pacific Northwest, Mexico, and beyond to bring diversity, flavor, and quality to the organic marketplace year-round. We find the freshest and tastiest organic produce and distribute it to our wide range of customers such as home delivery services, restaurants, natural food co-ops, independent retailers, regional grocery markets, and national chain stores.

We invite you to learn about what we do, meet the people who grow your food, find out more about sustainable agriculture, and follow the journey of your fruits and vegetables as they travel from farm to fork.

Organic chestnuts from Etter Orchards in Garberville, California. California Grown Make sure to score each nut with an x so they don't explode when cooking them. ... See MoreSee Less

Roasting chestnuts in Earl's kitchen. Things I learned- make sure to score your chestnuts deep enough so they don't explode in the oven, don't cook them too long, 20 minutes at 425 is just about right, peel them while they are still warm by wrapping the chestnuts in a paper towel and slightly crushing them with your fingers. Wow! The flavor is sweet and nutty. The smell had us all singing #Christmas carols #chestnuts roasting in Earl's oven.... #etterorchards #Garberville @cagrown #passion4organic ... See MoreSee Less

Our thoughts are with the countless people and businesses, including many of Earl’s customers, who have been affected by the devastating fires in the North Bay. We have had an incredible outpouring of support from our Growing Community during this challenging time.

We are pleased to be partnering with the following organic growers to donate fresh organic produce to the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa. Additionally Earl’s is donating organic produce to the Ukiah Coop who in turn is delivering to local evacuation centers and feeding the firefighters. We recognize that the call for assistance is on-going and we will continue to donate as long as is needed.
