Green Thumb: Local Asparagus Crop

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – When you think about where asparagus in the grocery store comes from, your first thought may be California.

Green thumb expert John Marra says, though, that you’ll have to include Lincoln County, W.Va., in your thinking.

John says the bulk of asparagus sales from the Lincoln County crop are at the Purple Onion store at the Capital City Market in Charleston.

A farm along Lower Mud River Road in Lincoln County produces the asparagus crop.
