Ambos Nogales Produce

ForkliftIn 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.

Annually, about 120,000 trucks cross the border bringing about $2.5 billion worth of Mexican fresh produce.
