La Galera Produce acquiring Chicago market unit from City Wide

2018-5-11-0832-La-Galera-City-WideCHICAGO — As of the end of May, La Galera Produce will be acquiring space previously occupied by City Wide Produce, its neighbor on the Chicago International Produce Market.

Pepe Vega Jr., who heads family-owned La Galera, said May 11 that his firm will also begin working with the same shippers who have supplied City Wide, which is closing its doors.

The Vega family is originally from Michoacán, Mexico. Vega said La Galera receives product grown by the family in Michoacán, as well as produce from other growers in other parts of Mexico.
