NORTH BERGEN AND BEYOND -- The state of New Jersey is trying to lure Hunts Point produce market from the Bronx to the Garden State, and they are considering North Bergen, as well as other Meadowlands locations.
According to a story in the Record of Hackensack, some of the other sites considered, including Newark, would make the market eligible from the Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit program.
That's the program that was blamed by local legislators for luring Panasonic from Secaucus to Newark.
The New York City Terminal Produce Co-operative Market at Hunts Point is the largest wholesale produce market in the country.
A Newark assemblyman is sponsoring a bill to make projects at the former EnCap site in the Meadowlands eligible for the credit too.
