Spinach is a hardy annual plant full of nutrients! Choosing local spinach decreases opportunity for this green to become wilted and crushed in transport, so it can deliver its many health benefits to you and your family! Spinach is a good source of Vitamin A, C, K, manganese, potassium, iron and some phytonutrients.
There are two main types of spinach: smooth leaf and savoy leaf. Savoy leaf spinach has greater texture in contrast to the smooth leaf variety. Regional and special varieties are also available, ask your farmer why and how they chose their spinach variety!
Fresh spinach will keep for 2 to 3 weeks if kept in very cool place (around 32 degrees F).
