Does walmart sell quinoa?

Yes, Walmart does sell Ancient Harvest: Traditional Quinoa, but the price varies depending on location. Quinoa is a grain-like crop that is closely related to spinach, beets and tumbleweeds.

Quinoa was originally grown in the Andean region of Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia and Peru, where it was domesticated around 3000 years ago for humans. It is considered a pseudo-grain rather than a true grain, but the nutrients are comparable to true grains. The seeds are cooked mainly the same way as rice and the leaves can also be eaten as a leaf vegetable.

The United Nations has designated this year as the International Year of Quinoa because they believe it can make an important contribution to global food security, as well as fight hunger.
