About Washington Vegetable


Washington Vegetable Company was established in 1931 and is a third-generation family owned wholesale produce business located at the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market. We are the oldest wholesale produce business located in the City & County of San Francisco. We provide fresh produce to a diverse customer base, which includes major chains, independent grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, jobbers and Government entities. At Washington Vegetable no customer is too big or too small. Washington Vegetable Company specializes in a variety of produce. In addition to our domestic business, we have a thriving export business that provides a full line of fresh fruits, vegetables and grocery items to the Pacific Rim and the South Pacific. Our knowledgeable staff has over 100 years of combined experience in the produce industry and we assure competitive pricing on quality products as well as efficient and excellent customer service.

We source our products daily from numerous suppliers large and small, both local and international. We value our supplier relationships, many of which have been in place for decades. It is these relationships that allow us to provide our customers with the freshest produce at the most competitive prices.

While proud and mindful of our past, we pride ourselves on constantly innovating in an attempt to improve the customer experience and meet the ever evolving requirements of our industry (years ago we recognized an increased interest in organic produce, so we expanded into organic sales in order to meet the demand). We are constantly expanding our product lines, in order to provide our customers with the latest products being offered. We have built state of the art, modern refrigeration facilities to assure proper and safe storage of our produce. We are proud to be one of the few merchants at the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market to have voluntarily developed, and placed ourselves under a third party supervised, food safety program. We utilize state of the art tracking software that allows us to immediately notify any customers affected in the event of a product recall.
