Casa de Fruta started out as a roadside fruit stand and today welcomes more than 2 million travelers from around the world each year. Come to the “Casa” to pick up some fresh-from-the-orchard produce, dine at the 24-hour restaurant, sample award-winning wines from Zanger Vineyards, shop for unique gifts, or even stay a few nights at the RV park.
Garlic World is a unique combination of fruit stand, gourmet food store, and gift shop. The store’s specialty is garlic (in every way, shape and form imaginable), but you can also find fresh produce, dried fruits, nuts, honey, preserves, Gilroy wines, gifts, and cookbooks.
This popular roadside farm stand at the corner of Masten Avenue and Santa Teresa Blvd. has become the lifeblood for the Bonino family’s agricultural operation.
