The Vale of Evesham is best known for its fruit trees but around Badsey market gardening is more important. In the fields you will see rhubarb, beetroot, broad beans, flowers for cutting, along with many other crops. Its most celebrated crop is asparagus - or 'gras' as it is known locally. People travel from far and wide to experience its unique flavour. During the short asparagus season from mid May to mid June, you can buy freshly cut rounds of gras in the village or taste it in either of the village pubs.
