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.

The Koru club apple was developed in 1998 in New Zealand by a chance seedling, but Braeburn and Fuji parentage are suspected. Korus have an attractive orange-red color skin over a yellow background. The shape is squat with some ribbing and russeting around the stem. It is complexly sweet, with subtle tartness and notes of honey, orange juice, spice, and vanilla. It has also been described as cidery, due to its juiciness. Koru apples keep their shape when baked, making them fantastic for pies. They are also slow to brown once cut, so they are ideal in salads or snacks. They are good savers — they can be kept up to four months in the refrigerator. Don’t miss this delicious apple from Starr Ranch, grown by multi-generational farming families in Washington and Oregon.

Club apples are varieties that are not just patented, but also trademarked and controlled in such a way that only a select “club” of farmers can sell them.

It is with sadness that we share the passing of organic farming revolutionary Amigo Bob Cantisano, one of CCOF Organic founding members (among his many, many other contributions to the organic community).

Excerpt from the LA Times: In 1973, he helped found California Certified Organic Farmers, setting organic standards. He was also one of the founders of the Committee for Sustainable Agriculture, which sponsors the EcoFarm Conference. The event, held every January in Pacific Grove, is still one of the most influential events in the world of sustainable agriculture.

CCOF’s Board of Directors Chair Phil LaRocca captured their reflections on Amigo Bob’s incredible life and legacy, saying, “Amigo Bob Cantisano was a close friend. As an early pioneer and true believer, he dedicated his life to growing and strengthening the organic movement. He never gave up in his belief and support for organic farmers. His energy and knowledge will be missed but his impact will never be forgotten.”

We will miss Amigo Bob greatly. His passion for organic, dedication to organic farmers and relentless energy and knowledge was felt by many of Earl's team members at the EcoFarm conference each year.
Amigo Bob is shown on the right in the photo below speaking at an EcoFarm farm tour.
