Alma, Arkansas

Alma, Arkansas

The company town for Popeye Brand Spinach, Alma proclaims itself the "Spinach Capital of the World." Containing a green water tower painted to be the world's largest spinach can, Alma also celebrates its strong heritage with an annual Spinach Festival each April.

Incorporated in 1872, Alma sits in the middle of prime real estate enjoyed by many outdoor enthusiasts who like to hike, bike, fish, hunt, camp and canoe. In contrast, bringing the arts alive in the River Valley is the Alma Performing Arts Center, a cultural center for western Arkansas. Alma is also home to Eagle Crest, on of Arkansas's finest golf courses.

The town is located on two major interstates, I-40 and I-540, and U.S. 71, which is part of the Boston Mountain Scenic Loop. Alma is located in the Arkansas River Valley about 15 miles from Fort Smith and at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains and Fayetteville, which is about 45 miles away.
