"Attractive prices help us promote niche products"

At Rob The Gourmet's Market, you can find unique products like wild asparagus, alongside spring fruit and vegetables. Didier Sperandieu, the delicatessen's product manager, is enthusiastic about promoting these niche products to customers. He mentions, "We've been selling wild asparagus for several years. This season started 3-4 weeks ago. Although it's not widely available, my team and I are committed to promoting it and offering cooking advice. To encourage people to try them, I also offer attractive prices and promotions. For example, this week I sold them for €6.95 a bunch - a significant reduction from the original price of €13 a bunch. Plus, I'm offering the third bunch for free."

In addition to wild asparagus, customers can also find medlar, another niche product. Didier explains, "Medlar is a very special fruit, mainly consumed by enthusiasts who eagerly await its arrival. It's a fragile fruit and quite difficult to market. Currently, we sell it for €13.95/kg. Sales are relatively low, but we offer customers the chance to taste them at our counter, and the response is often very positive."
