In 1905, the first rail car carrying fresh produce from Mexico crossed the border at Nogales, Arizona. Today, Mexico has become the top supplier of fresh fruits and vegetables for the United States. Today, Nogales is the largest single border crossing for Mexican fresh produce, handling more than 37% of all Mexican imported produce into the United States. Chances are that if you ate a tomato, cucumber, or other fresh vegetable today, it came through Nogales.
Of course, all this produce means big business. With over 100 growers and distributors located in Nogales, our critical mass makes it vital for produce companies to have a presence in Nogales. Warehouses and offices are available to start or expand your fresh produce business in Nogales!
For more than a century Nogales has served as the main gateway to North American markets for Sinaloa- and Sonora-grown tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, peppers, and other, mostly winter-harvested, vegetables. Annually, about 120,000 trucks cross the border bringing about $2.5 billion worth of Mexican fresh produce.
