1,000 Pounds of Asparagus Sold at Produce Auction

The Stanwood Produce Auction sold a huge amount of asparagus on Wednesday—about 1,000 pounds of it.

The market usually brings in about 400 pounds of the vegetable each week to auction off, but this week over two times the amount of asparagus came in.

The asparagus—sold by the pound, brought in about $1,350.Screen Shot 2020 05 27 At 4.39.38 Pm

“It gives them another good opportunity to sell their products and stuff where normally they wouldn’t have that,” Manager Randy Fulton said. “Especially with some of the farmer’s markets shut down.”

The auction is held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until October.
