Television Personality. Joe Carcione was a San Francisco Bay Area icon. He started his career working in his father's produce market in 1933. In the 1970s, he got a daily spot on local news station KCBS, thereafter graduating to both print (San Francisco Chronicle) and television (KRON). His television show, "The Greengrocer," was ultimately syndicated on dozens of television stations across the country. His trademark pronunciation of "VEG-it-ibbles" was both endearing and humorous. Millions of people learned about the proper ways to select and prepare fresh produce from him. He died at 73 of intestinal cancer. (bio by: countedx58)
