Join CCOF for our San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market Tour, now in its sixth year! This year’s tour will include walking the docks with Michael Janis, manager of the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market, who will highlight important factors for organic producers that are interested in wholesale to keep in mind. We will visit several of the houses in the San Francisco Wholesale Market, talk to buyers about what they look for when buying organic produce, and go on tours of Veritable Vegetable and Earl’s Organic Produce for an inside look at some of the Bay Area’s premier organic wholesalers. The tour will cover the specialties of the different organic wholesalers and provide tips on how to build long-lasting relationships with wholesale clients.
The majority of the six-hour tour will be spent walking or standing on cement, so comfortable walking shoes are a must. Your $65 ticket includes a breakfast snack and organic lunch.
This program is sponsored by Sambrailo Packaging.
