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.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As you were shopping for the holiday this year you probably noticed prices on some of your favorite items have gone up. Think back to the scorching temperatures over 110 degrees back in August and again in September in many growing regions, including Salinas Valley and Bakersfield. At any one time in vegetable row crop production there are multiple succession plantings in the ground. It is not only the plantings harvested during the heat wave that suffer, but also plantings harvested 60-90 days down the road, think October to December. You can expect quality and availability issues along with price increases on many veg items including green beans, baby bok choy, broccoli, baby sweet broccoli, broccoli crowns, brussels sprouts carrots, lettuce, colored bell peppers, heirloom tomatoes and cluster tomatoes. The good news is that in the next few weeks we will see increasing availability of product from the California and Arizona desert growing regions relieving some of our pain.

Earl's Organic Produce

Tips on roasting chestnuts: Cut an "X" shape into the flat side of each chestnut. Use a sharp knife to do this. This will make the chestnuts roast faster, allowing the steam to escape from the chestnuts. Place them on a baking sheet with the cut side up. Roast 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees, keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn. Let them cool slightly before easily removing the shell. We enjoy added them to Japanese rice for a fall favorite. www.justonecookbook.com/chestnut-rice-kurigohan/ ... See MoreSee Less
