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.
