DEWITT, MI - My family puts asparagus in everything. Breakfast scrambles, sautées, you name it and asparagus is there. I know many consumers maintain this school of thought, and Michigan asparagus growers have the supplies to back them up. The Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board (MAAB) announced the start of the season, promising thick, tender, and firm asparagus—all signs of a nutritious and flavorful harvest.

Jamie Clover Adams, Executive Director, Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board“Everyone has felt inflation’s impact on consumer buying behavior. Michigan asparagus provides value—a high quality, flavorful vegetable that consumers needn’t worry about going bad in the refrigerator before they have a chance to serve it to their families,” Jamie Clover Adams, Executive Director of MAAB, said.

Asparagus provides essential vitamins and minerals vital to a healthy daily calorie intake, a press release explained. The quality and attributes of Michigan-grown asparagus allow consumers to create restaurant-quality side dishes or mains in their own kitchens.
