Orchard Tour - Specialty Produce, San Diego

Saturday, March 16, 2024, 10:00 a.m. to noon


1929 Hancock St., Suite 150, San Diego, CA 92110

Our March “orchard tour” will again be something different and special. On March 16th we will tour Specialty Produce. Specialty Produce is a family-owned and operated fresh produce and grocery supplier with a 50,000 square foot warehouse in San Diego. They supply grocers and restaurants throughout San Diego, and the public can also shop there.

Bob Harrington, owner of Specialty Produce, spoke at our January chapter meeting and offered us a tour, for which our members expressed strong interest.

The tour will be from 10:00 to 12:00 at the warehouse, 1929 Hancock St. in San Diego. Here is a link to a liability release form that guests can fill out online ahead of time to save time.


The tour will include refrigerated areas, so jackets are advised. You will probably want to bring your shopping bags, too. Unlike most tours, refreshments will not be provided.

Please RSVP to Gwyn Quillen at tours@growrarefruit.org so we can let them know how many of us to expect. In your RSVP, please provide the name of each person for whom you are responding.

Also, please e-mail Gwyn if you would be willing to open your orchard or garden for a tour. The April slot is open.
