THE BRONX - The freezing temperatures aren't just taking a toll on road conditions and heating bills, they're also impacting produce. 

Vendors at the Hunts Point Produce Market say that the recent series of extremely cold and snowy days is affecting the growing season and supply. 

It also has sellers limiting the amount of produce on display because fruits and vegetables are fragile and need protection from the frigid weather. 

Workers say they’re even noticing a change in sales as more customers are stocking up on extra produce to avoid making return trips out in the cold.
