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.

Fuyu and Hachiya Persimmons are here! Fuyus can be eaten out of hand but you absolutely need to wait on a Hachiya to turn jelly soft before eating or you will be hit with a tannic mouthful. Click the image below for more info on each variety. We love making the James Beard Persimmon Bread with Hachiyas. www.davidlebovitz.com/persimmon-bread/ ... See MoreSee Less

Fair Trade Organic Dole Pineapples grown in Costa Rica are available year round. To earn Fair Trade certification, farms must adhere to rigorous social, environmental and economic standards. Once certified, the fruit grower or farm workers, will have a fair price for their business and the farm workers directly earn an additional premium to invest in the community or business development with every purchase. They then vote on how to use the money to address their needs. This direct economic benefit is truly what makes Fair Trade unique, and is a process that takes time and dedication to be realized. Fair Trade certified products stand for environmental responsible production methods and welfare of the communities and surroundings.

Two new community centers near Dole’s Muelle and Bosque Farms in Costa Rica, were made possible by Fair Trade purchases. Coming together the workers identified a critical need, saved over time, and invested their Fair Trade Funds in a project that will serve the community for decades to come. That’s the Fair Trade Difference at work. Unique in the fresh fruit industry, these centers were built to improve the quality of life of employees, and those in surrounding communities of Cutris in San Carlos and Guacimo in Limon, Costa Rica.
