MCALLEN, Texas – A Valley restaurant is selling its produce to the community, as many struggle to find essentials at the grocery store.
Dirty Al’s Bayou Grill in McAllen, like many restaurants, were forced to stop dine-in services. It slowed business down, but rather than throwing food away, the restaurant has set up a market outside where customers can purchase goods such as eggs and fresh produce.
Valentine Rangel, assistant manager, “Anybody that’s having trouble finding any products at the grocery store, we have them here. We have some variety of veggies and meats whole chickens, fish, shrimp, and crawfish available.”
The market will be set up everyday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and is located between 10th Street and Dove Avenue.
