Asparagus – Just in Time for Your Easter Dinner

McLenon Farm will be selling asparagus at the Overland Park Farmers’ Market this year, BUT they didn’t want to abandon all their Atchison customers.

Janean Bowen, Treasurer for the Atchison Farmers’ Market, will sell asparagus for them.  She will be at our market location this Saturday, May 15, beginning at 8 a.m. until sold out.  Come early to get your Springtime treat!

Note:  Cash only sales until official market opening day on May 20.  No credit, debit, or SNAP sales until then as the card reader will not be available until then.

Recipes shared from our customers:

“My aunt used to bake it.  She would layer asparagus in baking dish top with bacon and bake it at 350 for about 20-30 min depends on the amount of asparagus.”   From Carol G.

“I love to melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter add 1 T  balsamic vinegar and pour over cooked asparagus.”  From: Linda C.
