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-nine years – that’s three generations!

Here at C & L Produce, we provide the highest quality fruits and vegetables, organic and conventional, along with a variety of other food service items year-round. We have an extensive dairy and cheese program, as well as other specialty items such as ground spices, legumes, and grains. 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?

Broccoli Romanesco (pictured above), Broccoli Diccio, baby colored carrots, mixed chicories, cardones, apples and pears are all coming from local vendors and merit your attention!!

We have some amazing butterball potatoes coming in from Terra Firma Farms. These delightful potatoes are even sweeter and more delicious than the more commonly used Yukon golds. They are the best potato for making Gnocchi.

Winter citrus including blood orangessatsuma mandarins,and Meyer lemons are here and tasting divine!

Pomegranates are doing fantastic-their color resembles a cranberry and retains a good balance of sweetness and acidity for all your holiday salads or roasted squash dishes.

The rains have started here in northern California and with that will bring some of the best gifts Mother Nature has to offer.

Black Trumpets, Chanterelles, Yellow foot, Hedgehogs (pictured above) just to name a few. Call to find out pricing and availability.

For winter squash, all varieties are plentiful- acorn, butternut, red kuri and delicata just to name a few. They go great roasted and served with some farro and black beluga lentils (pictured here) either on their own as a foundation for a nicely grilled juicy hanger steak.

Root vegetables are also in full swing….plenty of nice sized celery root, parsnips, parsley root, salsify, and Jerusalem sunchokes (pictured here), perfect for a warm and herbaceous roasted dish.
