White asparagus bargain at Viva Grande - New Rochelle

I went there on my twice weekly produce run this morning. The have big bunches of white asparagus, two for a dollar. I've never prepared them, but I couldn't pass them up. They're at the outside market.

  1. Pat, is Viva Grande the one on Main Street and if so, what is the name of the supposedly larger store, related I think, Rancho Grande maybe? Also, where is the bigger one and is it that much better than the one on main?

      Sorry to be late with a reply, laylag. Viva Grande is the big one, corner of Huguenot and Centre. I think the one on Main is called Viva Ranch, and it was the first of the two. Both are good. It just depends on which one I happen to be closest to.Viva Grande's outside market has really inexpensive stuff and I'm not sure why, or if they're run but different entities. I love them all!

    2. What area are you talking about??
