Asparagus now ready at Primrose Vale & Over Farm Market


Asparagus in Gloucestershire

The British asparagus season is a highlight of the foodie calendar and is now ready at Primrose Vale Farm Shop near Brockworth and at Over Farm Market near Gloucester.

You can rest assured that your fresh asparagus will have no air miles attached to it, and that you'll be supporting local producers.

British asparagus has been hailed throughout the ages as a delicacy and today is classed as a 'Superfood' bursting with nutrients. It's low in calories, contains no fat or cholesterol and is very low in sodium. It's a good source of potassium, dietary fibre, rutin and folic acid so it’s good for expectant mums.

Seasonal fruit and vegetables are always on offer at Primrose Vale and Over Farm, as well as other local produce. At both farms you're also able to pick your own seasonal fruit, which always provides a great family trip out.
