Colorado spinach, an early season favorite

Colorado Department of Agriculture

Each month, the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different commodity to highlight the variety and quality of products grown, raised or processed in the state. This month, Colorado spinach is featured in our Spinach and Sundried Tomato Quiche recipe. 

Farmers’ Markets in Colorado are beginning, and an early season crop to look for is spinach. Choose fresh, crisp, green bunches with no evidence of insect damage. Spinach is fat free, high in dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, iron and folate and a good source of magnesium.

Look for Colorado spinach at your local grocery store, farmers’ markets or at restaurants across the state.
