Try the below code to get the attribute value :

$attr = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('your_attribute_code')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

and try to print the $attr variable.


Try following code, I did something similar but that was on the product page.

<?php  $_attributeValue = $_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getMaterial(), 'material'); 
if ($_attributeValue):
$attribute = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute($_code);
if ($attribute->usesSource()) {
    $optionText = $attribute->getSource()->getOptionText($_attributeValue);
    echo $optionText;

Please follow the code to find the attribute value -

$attr = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('your_attribute_code')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

echo $attr;

Hope this is help for you.
