ALBA Organics
sells locally grown and organic farm-fresh produce at competitive prices. Our inventory reflects the freshest ingredients found locally and in season. ALBA Organics has outgrown its on-farm cooler, warehouse, and delivery infrastructure at the ALBA Rural Development Center, near Salinas. The main office has moved to a warehouse and cooler in Watsonville. The new location is 35 minutes north to the Rural Development Center and will benefit farmers that have land north of Salinas or Prunedale or northeast of Watsonville. ALBA Organics will receive organic produce in both locations, but shipping for customers is only from the Watsonville facility.

Offices hours are Monday thru Friday from 8am to 5 pm and Saturday from 8am to 4pm.

About us:


In 2002, ALBA established ALBA Organics as a licensed produce distributor to support the sales and training needs of beginning farmers as an essential component to their development and success as entrepreneurs. ALBA Organics provides farmer-vendors with vital technical assistance on crop planning, field production, post-harvest handling/packing, as well as the marketing for distribution to a variety of customers.

The on-farm cooler, warehouse, and delivery infrastructure of ALBA Organics situated at the ALBA Rural Development Center near Salinas are major assets for both the farmers and the organization. ALBA Organics connects its customers with the highest-quality organic product available in season, and offers customers the opportunity to support small-scale, limited-resource and beginning farmers, many of whom are former farm workers, working to achieve economic success and sustainable livelihoods.
