Overview of The Hunts Point Market
The Hunts Point Food Distribution Center is composed of three independent cooperative markets:
- Hunts Point Cooperative Meat Market.
- Hunts Point Terminal Produce Market.
- New Fulton Fish Market.
The roots of the Hunts Point Market date all the way back to 1790, when the first vendors opened their stalls in the cobblestone streets of Manhattan. In the early 1900s, the market continued to operate downtown before relocating to its current location, a vast 113 acres in the south Bronx in 1967. The largest of the three independent cooperative markets is the produce market, which is home to E. Armata Inc. and over 30 merchants. The Hunts Point Terminal Produce Market is responsible for around 60% of the daily stock for New York City residents and feeding over 30 million people in the region.
