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?

New items popping up around the market include local corn, summer squash blossoms, and local berries. We have a fantastic local white corn from Brentwood, nice large size and creamy color. Summer squash blossoms, pictured below, are great stuffed, baked, fried, or even in lasagna! The creativity for these is boundless. Their beautiful flower like appearance looks great strewn across any plate, and their subtle taste bodes well with any flavor profile you prefer. Local berries are also hitting their stride, lovely bright colors and juicy insides. Locally grown melons are right around the corner! Stay tuned.

All leaf lettuce has rebounded impressively and is very strong at this point in the season. Extra noteworthy is Gem lettuce. These tiny versions of romaine have an excellent crisp, crunchy texture and sweet flavor. For something different, try our Red Gem lettuce we are currently sourcing. Contact Chet for a preorder of this special item. And of course, we must again mention local summer squash because they just keep getting better and better. Try any summer variety today!
