There’s more than enough room to grow on the New England Produce Market terminal for Chelsea-based Travers Fruit Co., said Richie Travers, the company’s treasurer and secretary.

“We have more than 150,000 cubic feet of refrigerated space,” Travers said.

“That’s quite a bit, especially for a terminal market. Our market is in good shape. Everybody keeps it up to speed.”

Maurice Crafts, salesman for Coosemans Boston Inc., Chelsea, which is at the New England Produce Center, agreed with Piazza that most tenants are happy where are they are.

“I think we’re fine, infrastructurewise,” he said. “And we have a lot of characters. Good guys, smart people.”

There’s certainly appeal to a brand new market, Crafts said, but he hasn’t heard any talk of it in Boston.

“It would be nice to have a beautiful market like Philly, but it comes with new circumstances,” he said.

Not least of which, Crafts said, would be higher rents.
