Hunts Point Market Thanksgiving preps begin

Workers at the Hunts Point Market had their hands full Monday, as it was the market's busiest day of the year.



For many New Yorkers, the market is the place to get almost everything for Thanksgiving.



Business owners say almost everything New Yorkers will eat for Thanksgiving comes in from wholesalers at the market.



Although they say they do not sell turkey, they say more than 30 million pounds of produce will be distributed out of the Hunts Point Market.



Beginning early in the morning, retail distributors bought and picked up vegetables and fruit for city supermarkets, greengrocers, retail outlets, and restaurants.
