MESSAGE FROM YOUR MARKET MANAGER
As many of you are aware I have had back pain issues for a while, my Doctors are counseling me to “take the time for recovery”. During the recovery time for my back issues, I have physical restrictions on what I can do, bending, lifting, twisting & driving
Also we have the reduced availability of local produce, due to the storms and heat, reluctantly, decided to keep the market closed until September 2, for market Thursday September 6,
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED We do need some volunteers to assist with sorting and managing pickup points, Dunnellon & Lecanto. Are you feeling called to assist in sharing the goals of improving Locally Grown Produce availability, Improving Local Family Farm Incomes, while reducing carbon foot prints please contact Michael – 352-895-3942 or Amy 650-465-3231.
I look forward to seeing you in September.
Keep eating healthily

Thank you for your understanding.
Alligator, an exotic Florida meat, is favored in cuisines around the world. The American alligator is not an endangered species. Successful management by farmers and regulators resulted in its removal from the endangered list in 1987.
Mild-flavored alligator meat is versatile and can be easily substituted in most recipes for chicken, veal or fish. Alligator, a lean meat, is low in fat and cholesterol and high in protein. It is available in a variety of cuts, including tail meat fillets, ribs, nuggets and wings. Tail meat, the choicest cut, is a mild-flavored white meat and has a texture similar to veal. The ribs, nuggets and wings are darker meat with a stronger taste and texture similar to pork shoulder. Alligator meat is commonly purchased frozen but can be obtained fresh.
