    Seems like the right climate for quinoa, provided they have compatible soil.

    That Saskatchewan company got the jump and registered quinoa.com for their website.  Doesn't look like they allow direct online ordering, though.

      3 one-pound bags, price is $14.70, plus shipping, which is $25.49 to California, so total of $40.19.

      By comparison, a four-pound bag of Bolivian quinoa at my local Costco is (IIRC) $9.39.

      Those shipping costs make it difficult.  Even if you buy from the farm in Colorado linked above, the shipping cost effectively doubles the price.
