Oh how I just love love love fresh Asparagus. Sauteed, steamed, battered & fried, or pickled…mmmm..there is just no wrong way to cook it. Well, one of Fistful of Coupons readers grows about 175 acres of it just outside of Pasco and wants to let you all know about her red produce stand and her sweet deal! They just opened up the stand TODAY 4/1! The season usually lasts from now to beginning of June.
They sell approx. 20 lb. boxes for $20!
$1 per pound is such an amazing deal!
Note: If someone is only wanting a pound or two they will pay more per lb, so if you want the $1 per pound you need to buy it in 20 lb boxes. Sometimes people want to share a box which works fine too as long as the whole box is purchased you get it for $1 a pound!
To get there:
First off I want to mention that they take CASH ONLY. They run the stand from Monday – Saturdays, time varies. For same day pickup please call and place your order before 10am for availability otherwise call the night before. And if you want a big order of 3+ boxes you will definately want to call the night before.
Call: Laura Middleton: 521-9935.
Directions from Tri-Cities area: Take Interstate 182 East towards Burbank/Walla Walla. Take the Kahlotus exit head right and stay on this for about a mile up the hill, on your right will be a red and white produce stand
