About

GreenLeaf’s story begins in 1976, when small local farmers in the greater Bay Area were finding it difficult to get their produce to restaurants and hotels in San Francisco. Enter Jameson Patton and Steve Walton, who recognized an opportunity to bridge that gap and opened GreenLeaf Produce. Instead of chefs waiting for each farm to drop off their goods, GreenLeaf would consolidate the pick up at one location and distribute the produce themselves. GreenLeaf grew by developing meaningful relationships with local farms, and with local chefs, and in 1993 ownership transferred to Bill Wilkinson.

Wilkinson had come from the hotel world, and for 25 years ran some of the top hotels and kitchens in California. Wilkinson took GreenLeaf to the next level by introducing fine local produce to world class hotel kitchens, along with becoming a groundbreaking pioneer in introducing specialty produce items to the San Francisco restaurant industry in general.

Today, GreenLeaf is one of the Bay Area’s premier purveyors of not only exceptional local produce, but of fine foods such as cheese, dairy, bakery and specialty goods. We continue our close, longstanding relationships with over 500 local growers and are always searching for outstanding new products to bring to our customers. We also support our community with substantial contributions and in-kind donations to organizations such as Project Open Hand, and the San Francisco Food Bank, among many others. The GreenLeaf team serves more than 900 restaurants, hoteliers and caterers from Big Sur to Healdsburg with over 6,000 unique produce items and hundreds of specialty items. 

Since its founding, GreenLeaf has been at the forefront of the Bay Area’s local food movement. People are paramount, and we nurture our relationships with our purveyors, customers and employees with equal care and dedication. GreenLeaf sources worldwide to find the best of class products available, while continuing to emphasize the excellence, sustainability and value that buying local provides. GreenLeaf represents integrity, quality and great service, just as it has for more than 35 years.
