“As far as farmers' markets go, this is as good as it gets”

Kelowna Farmers' and Crafters' Market

We spent half a day driving all over the Okanagan to find the perfect fruit stand, but ended up empty-handed. The next morning (luckily, a Saturday) we ended up on the Kelowna outdoor farmers' market, and it was simply amazing.

The market is the perfect size: big enough to offer a very decent selection of goods, but not so big that you get "lost" in the selection process or stressed. None of the booths were grubby, and the quality of goods was very high. To me, the mix between food and other products (such as soap and jewelry) was perfect. There were a few "pseudoscience" stalls, but not overly many. All vendors were very pleasant to talk to.

If you go, go early in the morning (the market opens around 8) - it will be relatively cool outside, it won't be too crowded, and it will be easy to park your car in the parking lot next to the market. Later during the day it might get more difficult.

Also, be sure to check whether you can find these stalls. Or not. I'm not the boss of you. But you won't regret it if you give them a try:

- German bread, hand-made by authentic German immigrants
- Dutch cheese, hand-made by authentic Dutch immigrants
- Spicy mango salsa
- Asian vegetarian steamed buns (the sweet and sour one is amazing)
- Blackberries from the Hoa Mai berry farm
- Chinese cucumbers
- And obviously, the rest of the large range of fresh fruit and vegetables at incredible prices.

I love farmers' markets, but rarely do I love them as much as this one. Next time I pass through the Okanagan, I will make sure to be in Kelowna on a Saturday again. And you should, too.

Wow you want some fresh vegetables or fruit be sure to check out the Kelowna Farmer's Market.
Awesome quality and many organic vegetables as well. Lots of craft items from wooden to jewelry items. The Kelowna Farmer's Market is open on Wed and Sat mornings. Well worth a nice relaxing stroll thru all the venues.

When you come to Kelowna the market is open Wednesdays and Saturdays with many venders selling home make items along with fresh veg and fruit when in season. Great place to meet people and enjoy every thing the market has to offer. We go on a regular basis, good to support local artists, crafters and farmers. Many items you will never see any where else.

Great place to buy fresh fruit, vegetables and support the local farmers. There's also crafts, baking and great people watching! Come early for bulk buying of fruit you want to can or preserve. Do a bit if price comparisons though. Often find prices are a bit cheaper from vendors inside the market!
