Florida is home to several suppliers of alligator products. Many offer alligator meat and meat products, finished hides, raw and crusted skins, and finished leather products or novelty items. Alligator meat is usually purchased frozen, but it is also available fresh. Alligator leather is particularly durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. Because each alligator hide has a unique pattern of “tiles” (or scales), each item made from alligator leather is unique, making them highly regarded and much sought after.
The Florida Market Bulletin provides the state's agricultural community with regular access to a statewide advertising forum. Small farmers, who otherwise could not afford statewide exposure, are able to advertise to buy or sell agriculture-related items in the Market Bulletin. Ads are posted online at the beginning of each month.
