Since its inauguration in April 2016, the new San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market has been steadily welcoming more and more produce growers and merchants from the U.S and Mexico, who are finding here the right warehouse amenities and ideal location for storage, distribution, and wholesale.

This new market consists of 60 warehouses, sometimes occupied as doubles or triples, that incorporate the best in functionality and modern design, with a large lot for general parking for visitors and trucks, and extra-wide streets for easy truck maneuvering. The project operates like a gated condominium with common area maintenance, 24-hour security, and video surveillance.

All warehouse units are 3,100 square feet with an additional 900 square feet mezzanine for an office, including insulated panels and roof, as well as a brand-new refrigeration equipment. Each cold room can hold up to 156 pallets or about seven truckloads.

The temperature in the loading areas is also controlled to ensure cold-chain continuity. Each warehouse features a 450-square foot covered front dock with access to lighter loads and three insulated dock-high doors in the back for trucks. Its interior layout facilitates the process to obtain warehouse certifications in the industry.

The new San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market has seen a considerable interest from local and international companies that are looking to serve the markets of San Antonio, Houston, Austin and Dallas. This location facilitates consolidation and distribution of northbound and southbound cargo crossing the borders of Mexico and Canada.

San Antonio, Texas is a booming city, and the new San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market is without a doubt the missing puzzle to house commercial vendors. Its location serves as a perfect regional hub for the distribution of fresh produce to all over Texas and Central East United States due to its geographical position and proximity to Mexico, where most produce imports come from, as well as its highway connectivity that facilitates the consolidation and distribution of north bound and south bound cargo.

San Antonio is the 7th largest growing city in the United States. Even though the city neighbors with Austin and Houston, San Antonio is an underserved metropolitan market with demand for fresh produce by the hospitality industry and food related businesses that serve more than 26 million tourists that the city hosts each year.

San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market allows importers, wholesalers and merchants to be closer to the biggest consumer markets in Texas besides San Antonio, such as Houston, Austin and Dallas. Additionally, and different from current most significant produce hubs like are McAllen, TX and Nogales, AZ, produce imports from Mexico can reach San

Antonio through a variety of ports of entry such as McAllen-Pharr, Laredo, Eagle Pass and even El Paso Texas. As highway infrastructure improves in Mexico, connectivity to primary produce production regions with this port of entry in Texas increases.

Out of the 80 acres designated for the development, 25 acres have been developed.

A total of 60 refrigerated warehouse units were finished at the beginning of the year. Each of the spaces has about 3,100 sq. ft.

Abasto Properties LLC, the developer, has had great success selling most of the units in this first phase and continues leasing the remaining units.

Backed by more than three decades of experience in wholesale produce market developments, Abasto Properties offers excellent support to companies acquiring lots to design and construct a warehouse according to their needs and specifications. Owner financing for the purchase of the lots is available.

People that know the industry like the large concrete streets for truck maneuvering and parking on one side, paved streets and plenty of parking on the other end of the lot. All utilities are available.

Also, the lots are part of the same condominium administration of the existing warehouses in the first phase and enjoy the typical amenities that come along with it, including controlled access, security and video surveillance, landscaping, and maintenance.

The second phase of the San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market is enhancing the relevance of the development in the Texas produce industry overall, and it’s also attracting larger companies looking at San Antonio as an ideal distribution, processing, repacking and wholesale spot for their US or Mexico grown products.

The demand for larger warehouse accommodations with cold rooms and freezers in central Texas is already pushing the recently inaugurated San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market in south San Antonio to continue the development of the next phases of its warehouse park.

Abasto Properties has already started the second phase of the Produce Terminal Market. Although ground breaking is planned for the first half of next year, the company is already pre-selling the industrial lots for customers to build warehouses of 10,000 sq. ft. or more.

San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market is located right on South East Loop 410 that connects all the city and provides easy access to Interstate 10 to get to Houston, Interstate 35 coming from Laredo, passing through Austin and Dallas all the way to Canada, and Interstate 37 coming from McAllen-Pharr and Corpus Christi.
