Vintage Fruit & Vegetable Crate Labels

Beautiful, funny and sometimes racy, fruit and vegetable labels were created to catch the eye of consumers on cans and labels for produce crates.

Early in the 1900's growers and merchants used beautiful artwork to entice people to buy their fruits and vegetables.

Artist created sun drenched landscapes and romantic scenes to make their produce stand out.

The artwork on these labels can now be appreciated for their unique beauty and have become popular retro kitchen decor.
