THE BRONX - The nation's largest produce market is back at the bargaining table after threatening to take their business elsewhere.

Hunts Point vendors say they will take their business to New Jersey if the city approves a proposal to raise license fees.

Vendors also want to talk about lowering transportation costs and renovating the market facility. New Jersey officials are offering a new state-of-the-art market with refrigeration facilities.

Vendors say they would like to stay in the Bronx, but increasing costs are taking a toll on their business.
