Spinach Capital of the World:
Alma, Arkansas vs. Crystal City, Texas

(2002) Today begins the Alma, Arkansas, 2002 Spinach Festival. Alma claims to be the Spinach Capital of the World, but so does Crystal City, Texas. This is the link to the whole story. I wrote emails to both cities, just to see what they would say.

Dear People,

Crystal City, Texas, and you both claim to be the Spinach Capital of the World.

Just to set the record straight, on what do you base your claim for the title?

Thanks,
