Al's Fruit Stop in Geyserville

Melanie Wong | Aug 31, 200612:35 AM    

Got a late start Friday afternoon and wondered where I might find some fresh produce when the other stands had closed for the night. I've bypassed the multi-signed van parked off 101 on the south access road to Geyserville but this time decided to stop.

This was a good move. I needed some slicing tomatoes and found "Celebrity" here, grown organically in a Geyserville garden for $1.50 per pound. Al threw in the one heirloom he had left at the end of the day. I also got some locally grown lemon cucumbers, four left in the bin for a buck.

Al told me his van is here six days a week. On Mondays he drives over the hill to get melons from Winters and pistachios in Arbuckle. He said he buys direct from family farms and doesn't sell brokered fruit.
