    Melons grow on the ground, so wash them with a vegetable brush under cold running water just before cutting.  After cutting, all melons should be kept covered and refrigerated. (Photos courtesy Turlock Fruit Company)

You may have seen our produce truck – if you're out early in the morning.  Dave is our produce buyer and department supervisor for both stores.

Dave is one of our original employees-one of our first hires at our inception in 1985! 

He buys direct from the San Francisco produce market and from local growers when in season, including organic farmers.

You can be assured, if the produce isn't the best, Dave won't bring it "home" to Sonoma Market and Glen Ellen Village Market!
