Russo's Wholesale Produce is a family owned and operated business. First opened in the late 1930's as a retail fish market, the owners would trade seafood to the local farmers for produce, which then would be sold to the residents of Monterey Peninsula and independent grocery stores. By 1950, the business had developed into a retail fish and produce market in Seaside, California. With continued success, by 1980 the family decided to move forward and focus on produce only and have been serving hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals and government installations ever since. Our current warehouse is located in Del Rey Oaks, California.
The warehouse is 15,000 sq.ft. with loading docks, dry storage, refrigeration units and ripening rooms for the conditioning of avocados, bananas, tomatoes and various fruits that require ripening. Our produce distribution area is from Santa Cruz to San Ardo, Ca. We are open Monday through Saturday 5:00am-2:00pm.
The sales staff buys only the best quality merchandise from local farmers and worldwide growers. We receive daily shipments to ensure that our customers get the freshest products. Russo’s Wholesale Produce is HAACP, FDA / USDA compliant, ServSafe certified and regularly inspected by the California Food and Agriculture commission to ensure food safety.
Most recently in March we reopened our doors to the public during the pandemic of 2020 to help offer a safe and efficient way for our community to have access to fresh produce and other staple items. Today we are a company where commercial and community come together to create a unique marketplace. With over 70 years of experience and three generations of family, we look forward to serving you.
