Renowned for market gardening (on a commercial scale) and home to Vale of Evesham Asparagus (with protected name status), local produce is of top quality thanks to the exceptionally fertile soil.The glorious River Avon meandering around the town adds to a list of wonderful assets including a fantastic array of unique events – each worthy of a visit.To visit their tourism website, click here.
