Wake up and smell the peaches…

Get deep into the country atmosphere by indulging in North Okanagan’s famous fresh fruits and fun.

Whether you are looking for live entertainment, good old-fashioned hospitality or just something to snack on, a local farmer’s market has what you crave.

Markets in and around the Vernon area feature the valley’s phenomenal fruit, eggs, baked goods and hand-made crafts.

The Vernon Farmer’s Market is located in the multiplex parking lot off 43rd Avenue and annually features more than 100 growers and artisans. The market takes place every Monday and Thursday from 8 a.m. until noon through to the last week of October.

In addition to this feast of fruit and festivities, another market is set up in the Wal-Mart parking lot from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. every Friday night until October.

For some good eating and great socializing on the weekend, travel to the Armstrong Farmers Market every Saturday morning at the IPE Fairgrounds from 8 a.m. to noon.

Other locations where you can revel in the fruits of nature include Bella Vista Farm Market, Aberdeen Farm Market, Davison Orchards and Gatzke Orchards.
