Welcome to Napa Valley’s Organic Oasis, Cal Mart!

Cal Mart is your premier, one-stop shop for the freshest, most flavorful produce Calistoga has to offer!

At Cal Mart, we’re passionate about connecting our community with high-quality, locally sourced fruits and vegetables. But why choose local, you ask? The benefits extend far beyond just taste and freshness. In fact, there are many reasons why shopping for local produce is a win-win for you, your health, and our environment.

Peak Freshness on Your Plate

Imagine biting into a juicy strawberry bursting with flavor, or savoring a crisp, leafy green that hasn’t traveled thousands of miles to reach your table. This is the reality when you choose local produce

Unlike conventionally grown fruits and vegetables that are often picked unripe and transported long distances, local produce is harvested at peak ripeness, ensuring the best possible taste and nutritional content.

Because locally grown items haven’t spent days on trucks or in warehouses, they retain their natural sugars, vitamins, and minerals, delivering a superior flavor experience. Here are several other compelling reasons to choose locally sourced produce on your next shopping trip.

Packed with Nutrients

Locally sourced produce retains more of its vital nutrients than conventionally grown fruits and vegetables shipped long distances. The longer produce sits in transit, the more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants it begins to lose. By choosing local, you’re ensuring your body gets the maximum nutritional benefit from every bite.

Supporting Our Local Growers

When you choose local produce at Cal Mart, you’re directly supporting the hard-working farmers who cultivate our land. Your purchases help keep our local agricultural community thriving. These farmers are the backbone of our food system, using sustainable practices that benefit the environment and ensure the future of healthy, local food production.


Locally sourced produce travels a shorter distance from farm to table, which significantly reduces its carbon footprint. Traditional, large-scale agriculture often relies on heavy transportation and refrigeration, leading to increased greenhouse gas emissions. By choosing local, you’re minimizing your environmental impact and contributing to a more sustainable food system.

Seasonal Symphony of Flavors

Nature has a wisdom all its own. Fruits and vegetables are meant to be enjoyed at their seasonal peak. Shopping locally allows you to experience the symphony of flavors that different seasons offer. In the spring, delight in tender asparagus, vibrant strawberries, and sweet peas. Summer brings forth juicy peaches, heirloom tomatoes, and refreshing watermelon. And the bounty of fall means crisp apples, earthy mushrooms, and hearty winter squashes.

Endless Culinary Inspiration

Locally sourced produce offers a vibrant palette of flavors and textures that can inspire endless culinary creativity. Experiment with seasonal ingredients to create unique and delicious dishes. Embrace the natural variations in taste and appearance that come with fresh, local produce. You’ll be amazed at the depth of flavor and the connection to the seasons that locally sourced ingredients can bring to your meals.

Cal Mart: Celebrating Seasonal Bounty with Local Farms

Beyond Traditional It Doesn’t Have to Be All About the Meat

We’re passionate about bringing you the freshest, most flavorful produce available. Our commitment to local sourcing shines brightest during the spring and summer months, when nearby farms and ranches deliver a harvest bursting with color and variety. Asparagus, strawberries, peas, cherries, blueberries, blackberries – these are just a few of the dozens of fruits and vegetables that make their way straight from the field to your table.

As summer winds down and fall approaches, our local purveyors continue to offer a bounty of seasonal favorites. Look for crisp green beans, juicy nectarines, ears of sweet corn, and vibrant raspberries. The changing colors of the leaves are mirrored in our selection of apples, figs, persimmons, and Asian pears, not to mention plump walnuts ready for autumnal baking.

Featured among these local offerings, you’ll find produce grown by some of Calistoga’s finest.

Lazy Susan Ranch, located here in our own beautiful town, supplies us with delicious fruits and vegetables. We also partner with Long Meadow Ranch near St. Helena, known for its vast selection of over 500 varieties of organic heirloom fruits and vegetables.

Beyond Local Sourcing

While we celebrate our local partnerships, Cal Mart also offers a wide selection of quality produce from trusted distributors.

  • OK Produce: This Fresno-based company, a pillar of the industry for over 70 years, has been delivering exceptional fruits and vegetables since the 1930s. What began with a single delivery truck driven by founder Charlie Matoian has evolved into a leading distributor of fresh produce.
  • Nor-Cal Produce: This distributor provides Cal Mart with everything from root vegetables to apples, pears, and exotic fruits. Whether you’re craving berries, citrus, melons, or something more unusual, Nor-Cal Produce has you covered.

With such a diverse selection, Cal Mart guarantees you’ll find the freshest, most delicious produce to suit your every culinary need. So come visit us today and experience the difference that local and quality sourcing makes!

Locally Sourced Means Transparency and Knowledge

When you buy local, you have a closer connection to the source of your food. Many local farmers are happy to answer questions about their growing practices and the origin of their produce. This transparency allows you to make informed choices about the food you’re putting on your table and fosters a sense of trust and connection with your local food system.

Biodiversity on Your Plate

Large-scale agriculture often relies on monoculture farming, which involves planting large fields of a single crop. This practice can deplete soil nutrients and reduce biodiversity. Local farms, on the other hand, often embrace sustainable practices like crop rotation and companion planting, which promote a healthy ecosystem and a wider variety of fruits and vegetables. By choosing local, you’re supporting biodiversity and promoting a healthier, more resilient food system.

Beyond the Produce Aisle

The benefits of shopping for locally sourced products extend beyond the produce aisle. Cal Mart is committed to partnering with local businesses whenever possible. This means you can find locally produced honey, jams, and cheeses alongside your fresh fruits and vegetables. This creates a vibrant network of local businesses that strengthens our community and ensures a wider variety of high-quality products for you to enjoy.
