Despite a last-minute cancellation two weeks ago (due to a family emergency) and some confusion last week when they were accidentally left on the map, Wild Alaska Salmon is finally and truly coming to the Market this Saturday. For those of you who wait for this once-a-year event and have been inquiring at the BRFM Information booth, this is good news indeed!
From the richest salmon fishing region in the world–Bristol Bay, Alaska, the meat of wild sockeye salmon is a brilliant shade of red due to their natural, hormone and chemical-free diet. Salmon has these well-known health benefits:
- High in Omega-3 oils which have been shown to lower cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease as well as lowering triglycerides.
- Naturally abundant in many essential nutrients and vitamins including Vitamins A, C, D and E, niacin and Vitamin B-12.
- An excellent source of protein.
- Low in saturated fats and low in calories.
Following U.S. regulations to prevent overfishing and using renewable/sustainable fishing methods, Wild Alaska Salmon is good for the environment too. And best of all, it tastes delicious! Don’t miss this annual opportunity to get your fresh-caught, frozen-right-on-the-boat, wild Alaskan sockeye salmon at the Market this Saturday, directly from the fisher-woman!
