PHARR, Texas – The Pharr International Bridge recently celebrated the start of the fresh produce season with an event titled “Taste of Trade.”

Every year the Pharr Bridge Board hosts an event to bring together the growers and shippers of the fruits and vegetables that comes to the United States from Mexico through their bridge.

A new component of the celebration was an invitation for local chefs and restaurants to prepare some dishes made with the fresh produce that comes across the bridge.

One of the speakers was Pharr Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez. Here are his remarks from the podium:
