Where Great Meals Begin


CavProducePortraits0031-XLWho We Are, Who We Serve

It all started with a passion for cooking, a love of great food, and a desire to work with people who felt the same way.  Cavalier Produce was founded in 2001 by Denise and Steve Yetzer with a mission to bring something unique to the experience of buying fresh fruits and vegetables for families, restaurants, and businesses.  After learning the ropes of the produce industry in Washington, DC, Denise and Steve moved to Charlottesville, fell in love with the area and its people, and decided to “dig in,” talk about their passion, live their dream, and make a difference in the restaurant community in central Virginia.
