Our asparagus is tender and delicious, great as an appetizer, a vegetarian side-dish, or part of a healthy stir-fry.

Jessica's Stand regularly carries bundles of Certified Organic asparagus, sold by the pound.


Health Benefits

Asparagas "provides a truly unique combination of anti-inflammatory nutrients," and is also "a digestive support food." It is unusual for a vegetable, because it contains significant amounts of the nutrient inulin," an effective prebiotic and digestive aid.
