Asparagus

Whether green or white, spring would not be complete without this particular Valais speciality – asparagus, which grows best in the sandy soil between Martigny, Fully and Saxon. Harvested in the morning and enjoyed the same day. Fresh asparagus is a real treat, whether served as a side dish or with dry-cured ham and mayonnaise as a starter. The Valais brand guarantees the freshness of the asparagus as well as compliance with the dimensions and strict social and environmental norms.
