Nearly 50 years ago, Andy and Katie Skikos settled with their five children in Sonoma County, and opened a small fruit stand on the outskirts of Sebastopol.
Along with his wife, his brothers and their families, Andy worked day and night seeking the freshest fruits and vegetables possible. As Sebastopol matured as a town, Andy’s kept up with the growing demands of the community by continuously expanding its small retail store.
Andy’s Produce evolved into the most prominent open-air produce market in northern California. It keeps its old-fashioned fruit stand appeal while offering a complete selection of organic and natural food products.
Andy and his family have upheld their integrity and commitment to quality that locals and tourists alike have come to expect from this unique agricultural region. In addition to premium fruits and vegetables, Andy’s offers a grand selection of organically grown produce, a packaged bulk food and grocery section and all natural health and beauty products. Andy’s is proud to feature local fine wines, select specialty foods and an incredible gourmet cheese section. In addition to its retail outlet on the outskirts of beautiful Sebastopol, this family business is dedicated to satisfying the needs of over 100 local restaurants with its wholesale division.
As a true family-run institution, many family members are still involved in the market’s daily functions. Andy’s son-in-law Frank runs the Wholesale division, which supplies the large-scale needs of several local stores and restaurants. Andy’s brother Dee, daughter Kim and daughter-in-law Jane are in charge of the store, while daughters Julie and Shelley complete many of the office duties for the corporation. On any day of the week, you can walk into Andy’s market and be greeted by one of his 19 grandchildren or even by Andy himself.
