Fresh produce

The Thompson Okanagan region of British Columbia enjoys a growing climate of sunny days and dry heat, which yields glorious results at numerous farmers markets.

Choose from freshly picked vegetables, delectable artisan foods, scrumptious free-range eggs, and tasty grass-fed meats.

Many communities host farmers markets spring through fall, usually on Saturdays (check with local Visitor Centres, as this varies from town to town). Some major farmers markets include Pioneer Country Market, Gatzke's Farm Market, and the Kelowna Farmers and Crafters Market.

Alternatively, head to local farms to check out the on-site bounty, or pick up seasonal specialties at regional fruit stands brimming with boxes of fresh peaches, tomatoes, cherries and much more. To learn all about the history of BC’s fruit-growing industry, visit the BC Orchard Industry Museum in Kelowna.
