The Class Produce Group is a third generation family-owned business, which has been servicing the greater Baltimore/Washington corridor for 81 years. We started with one stall in 1936 at the old Baltimore Marsh Market. As the business grew, Deemer Class expanded to the Pulaski Highway Market in 1960. In 1975, the business moved to the newly constructed Maryland Wholesale Produce Market in Jessup, MD. This centralized location helped vendors better serve customers in the D. C. and Baltimore corridor.
Deemer Class was dedicated to providing only the highest quality. He conducted business with a handshake and smile and was known for honesty and first class service. He was able to pass these principles on to his son, Pete, and through Pete to his grandsons, who now manage the business.
In 2004, we moved our operation to our own distribution center in Jessup. The Class Produce Group has enhanced customer access to a larger product line, including locals and organics, augmented buying power, additional distribution services, including direct ship. The knowledge and experience of our management team enables us to serve some of the largest customers on the East Coast. Each member of our team is committed to customer satisfaction and is passionate about delivering the best.
