Earl’s Remembers John Pizza From Washington Vegetable

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Earl’s Organic fondly remembers John Pizza from Washington Vegetable Company.  John, a prominent leader of the San Francisco Produce Market, passed away on Friday evening.  Earl started buying from the Market back in 1980 when Washington Vegetable was THE vegetable house.  Earl would come down around midnight and walk the Market for a few hours.  If you wanted to get the best greens, especially leaf lettuce you went to Washington Vegetable.  Earl remembers John schooling him on the proper etiquette of the market.  “You buy all your stuff from us. That way we take care of you when the market is tight.” Earl remembers replying “What if your quality isn’t good?” John told him “Don’t worry. We will take care of you.”  Earl built his relationship with John and Washington Vegetable over the years and knew he could always expect quality product. John will be missed by all of us on the Market.

A Visitation will be held on Tuesday, from 5pm to 7pm with a Rosary at 6:30pm at Halsted N. Gray – Carew & English, 1123 Sutter St. SF. A Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday at 10:30am at Saints Peter & Paul Church, 666 Filbert St., SF. Private Interment.
