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?

August is just about here, which means sweet peppers and heirloom tomatoes are hitting their stride! New sweet pepper varieties available from our favorite local farm suppliers include Jimmy Nardello, Flamingo, Gatherer’s Gold, Jolene’s Choice, Topic Rosso and Sweet Pimento. These sweet peppers vary in shape, size, bright colors and textures, but all are bursting with outstanding summer flavor and pack a crisp bite. Heirlooms are another highlight of summertime! We are sourcing gorgeous mixed variety heirloom tomato boxes. Straight packs are also available for pre order. Varieties include Brandywine, Cherokee, Marvel Stripe, Big Zebra, Green Zebra, Jubilee and Vintage Wine. These tomatoes are simply the best. Also, the baby mix medley tomatoes we are currently sourcing are out of this world! They are little pops of sweet sunshine!

Local sweet white corn from Brentwood is at peak flavor currently, coupled with its summertime pricing! Be sure to try some while it is coming from local farms. Summer squash continues to flow in beautifully, boasting such creamy colors. Local beans such as blue lake, yellow wax, Romano and cranberry are still going strong as well. Finally, we have been receiving some great local California melons! Try a galia or green goddess melon for an extra sweet flavor punch to an ordinary (but still delicious!) fruit salad.
