Serving the Bay Area & Beyond Since 1931

We provide fresh fruits and vegetables to a diverse customer base, which includes major chains, independent grocery stores, restaurants, jobbers and Government entities.
Weather related issues are causing prices to soar on certain vegetable items. Higher than normal temperatures in the Desert Southwest have led to an early harvest of crops in that area, with crops that are still in the ground suffering extensive damage from the heat. While we would normally have the start of the Salinas growing season getting underway, the extremely wet winter delayed plantings in California and the Salinas Valley harvest has been delayed. The net result is that shortages of certain items are resulting in extremely high prices.
