Last July, the wholesalers and produce distributors considered a Hunts Point property dubbed the Halleck Industrial Development Site, but said it was not ideal for their purposes. At the time, D’Arrigo said the market could decide on a move or rebuilding decision by fall 2012 or winter 2013.
The market has been in the Bronx since 1967. It sits on 113 acres and has 1 million square feet of interior space. The cooperative represents 47 vendors.
