Superior Service + Consistent Quality = Unbeatable Value.

C&L Produce is a local family owned and operated wholesale produce business established in 1949.  We provide restaurant produce delivery to Oakland, San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.  We are located in the downtown Oakland produce market neighboring Jack London Square. As a matter of fact, C & L Produce has been in operation out of this downtown Oakland location for over sixty-eight years – that’s three generations!

Here at C & L Produce, we provide the highest quality fruits and vegetables, along with a variety of other food service items year-round. Please check our Fresh Produce page for more details about produce products and please call us for more information.

Utilizing C & L for your produce needs has several unique benefits. What truly sets us apart from our produce competitors is the individualized service you receive as our customer. Our hardworking personnel reflect what a family business is all about. Because of this, many of our employees have been with our company for over ten years! This shows how committed we are to maintaining a positive, professional environment for ourselves and for our customers.

Ultimately, we work hard to provide premium local produce at competitive prices with the finest service available.

What’s in Season?


Wonderful winter citrus is starting to flow in nicely. Beautiful satsuma tangerines are here, as well as bright and juicy blood oranges, grapefruits and Meyer lemons. Local artichokes are hitting the market as well, coming from our favorite Castroville suppliers. Baby beets are another great buy this time of year! Try baby red, baby gold, baby Chioggia, or a mix of all three for a stunning plate. Another noteworthy item this month is braising mix. This hearty blend of greens is perfect for a vitamin packed side dish, and is just begging for a creative punch of flavor.

Butternut squash, as well as many other delicious varieties of local organic winter squash, are solid currently. These organic winter squashes are locally grown just a mere 100 miles from us. Mushrooms are also taking off right now! Varieties available now include fresh porcini, oyster, shiitake, and chanterelle. We are very much looking forward to receiving some fresh Oregon truffles to come in the next few weeks as well- stay tuned.

As for price watches, luckily the tomato price has normalized (for the winter season), and there is nothing to report about avocados, either! Things are looking stable across the board.
