Farmer's Market begins to offer some fresh produce

Updated:

News release from the City of Parsons:

The Parsons Farmers Market kicked off amidst the raining spring weather bringing a variety of vegetables, beef, flowers, baked goods and crafts. The Market is held at 1618 Broadway, just south of the Parsons Municipal Building, through the end of October. Hours of operation are from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and from 7 to 10 a.m. on Saturdays.

Throughout this season, each week a different farmer's market product will be featured. This week, we have chosen to feature locally grown asparagus, which is currently available at the market.

Several vendors have fresh supplies ready for a spring recipe like the one below:

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
10 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
1/8 teaspoon pepper
5 bacon strips, halved lengthwise

  • Place asparagus on a sheet of waxed paper; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with pepper; turn to coat. Wrap a bacon piece around each spear; secure ends with toothpicks (that have been soaked in water).
  • Grill uncovered over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until bacon is crisp. Discard toothpicks. Makes 2-3 servings.
