Abstract: Post-harvest shelf life of fruits and vegetables is direct related to storage temperatures of these products. At controlled conditions of temperature and humidity, the speed of metabolic reactions can be reduced, allowing better conservation of the products. The evaluation was carried out in the Terminal Market of São Paulo- CEAGESP, to identify the condition of cold chambers used for storage of fruits and vegetables. The parameters investigated were: air temperature, relative humidity, refrigerated conditions, type of floor, chamber and door dimensions. Data were used to calculate thermal load. Apples and pears were the most stored commodities (63.25%) in CEAGESP, followed by bananas (24.10%). Based on the average commercialization volume, it was observed that 73.91% of the motors were super dimensioned.
