About Us

Since 1993, J.L. Gonzalez Produce has been in the business of providing the highest quality produce at competitive prices. We  specialize in offering Mexican produce, and pride ourselves on catering to customers who demand a premium product.


We first opened for business in 1993 in a basement located in the famed South Water Market in Chicago. Originally designed for the industry of the 1920s, our facility underwent extensive remodeling as the company grew.

2001 marked the groundbreaking of the Chicago International Produce Market (CIPM), which signaled a change from the now-antiquated South Water Market to larger, modern facilities. We were the first company operating on the new market when, in October 2002, we moved all operations within the CIPM.

Today, our facilities include over 20 docks, several industrial cooling rooms and freezers, as well as 10 ripening rooms. We continue to explore improvements in meeting our customers' needs.
