THE NATIONAL AND REGIONAL IMPORTANCE OF WHOLESALE PRODUCE MARKETS

The results of a three-year study to establish baseline estimates of the importance of wholesale produce markets (WPM) are reported. It is estimated that a third of all produce marketed in the United States and Canada goes through WPM. These facilities tend to be most important in larger urban areas. Gate and unloading fees commonly charged at WPM may place them at a competitive disadvantage relative to off-market sites.
