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.

What’s in Season?

Fall is coming, but here in the Bay area our Indian summer lingers. We are still enjoying some delicious summertime gifts from mother nature. Stone fruits & heirloom melons are continuing to produce some great sweetness. Also, heirloom tomatoes are in full swing with a multitude of varieties available for your different menu options, along with the San Marzano for your sauces.

Squash is plentiful; both the skinned zucchini, yellow and patty pan varietals are fantastic. Local Brentwood corn and Dwelley Farms Blue Lake beans are still incredible, as are the fresh cranberry and Italian butter beans.

Fresh figs are plump and delicious. In the pepper family, we have padron, shishito, jimmy nardello’s, Italian frying and multi-colored bells available now.

As far as grapes go, nothing better than those concord grapes for sorbets and jams. Pomegranates are just starting and probably need a week or two to fully develop good color and flavor.

We are proud to start offering some wonderful cultivated mushrooms such as hen of the woods, King trumpet, brown beech and brown and white clamshells. We also offer wild mushrooms, Lobster and Chanterelles as a pre-order, available by a 5 LB case only. Orders would need to be in by Tuesday night for Friday delivery.

We at C&L are proud to showcase local farms and Foragers- Happy Boy, Terra Firma, River Dog, Full Belly, Dwelly, Coke, Knoll, Wine Forest, among many others.  In addition to our great produce items, we have paired with Berkeley Farms to develop a full dairy program, which is in addition to our cage free eggs, Califia almond milks, unsalted butter, Plugra butter (high fat) and assorted cheeses. Please feel free to call us with any questions about these products, pricing, and/ or menu suggestions.
