120,000-Square-Foot Greenmarket Regional Food Hub Planned Along Food Center Drive, Hunts Point

As part launching the New York State Grown & Certified program, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced plans for a new 120,000-square-foot food facility, dubbed Greenmarket Regional Food Hub. It will be located at an undisclosed location along Food Center Drive in the South Bronx’s Hunts Point section and will have processing facilities and a farmer’s market, Crain’s reported. The food hub, expected to cost $20 million, is scheduled to be completed sometime in 2017. Food products will be delivered to the Hunts Point location from small- to mid-sized farms throughout upstate New York. A 100,000-square-foot expansion is planned at the Baldor Specialty Foods facility at 155 Food Center Drive, although it’s unclear if the two projects are connected.
