Farms & Markets
Penticton is developing a reputation among food lovers.
Food production has been part of the city's culture from the beginning of European settlement. Huge cattle ranches morphed into one of the most important fruit growing regions in Canada.
The south Thompson Okanagan is the only part of BC where soft fruits like peaches and apricots will grow. Other tree fruits include cherries, plums, apples and pears. Look for these Okanagan specialties at local markets and roadside fruit stands.
Produce and Markets
The last ice age left a rich legacy of clay soil and glacial till. Coupled with a mild climate and available water supply, the area around Penticton is an agricultural dream, producing an abundance of seasonal fruits and vegetables.
