Spinach Capital Hosts Festival

By Linda Tancs

Popeye, the fictional sailor of comic strip and other media fame, certainly made spinach look cool when he sang “I’m strong to the finich cause I eats me spinach.”  The folks in Lenexa, Kansas would no doubt agree with that sentiment.  Part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, the city once dubbed the “spinach capital of the world” pays homage to this super green with a super-sized salad and a recipe contest.  This year’s Spinach Festival takes place on 10 September from 9 to 5 at Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park.  Not into greens, you say?  No worries.  The annual event is equal parts art, crafts and antiques, from stained glass to puzzle boxes to copper tree art.
