Great Stockton Asparagus Dine Out

Thank you to all who participated - restaurants and diners - in GSADO 2014!

The Great Stockton Asparagus Dine Out (GSADO) is back for its 5th year and bigger than ever! 

During the Great Stockton Asparagus Dine Out, we invite local foodies and families to dine out in Stockton at participating restaurants. These restaurants will feature unique asparagus-related menu items prepared with locally grown asparagus!

After the success of our annual Stockton Restaurant Week, we created GSADO to showcase locally grown asparagus and its use in local cuisine! Local growers work with local restaurants to provide the freshest locally grown asparagus to their kitchens. Our famous locally grown spear will be featured in appetizers, entrées, desserts, and drinks throughout Stockton!

Are you a Stockton restaurant owner interested in participating?
