Shoppers enjoy music and fresh Okanagan produce at the Kelowna Farmers' Market

April 11, 2013 - 3:32 PM

A busker was singing the blues for shoppers at the first weekend farmers' market of the year. Now in its 18th outdoor season, vendors at the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market set up stands on the corner of Springfield Road and Dilworth Drive last Saturday offering up the first spring crops of the Okanagan Valley. 

Visitors can shop for anything from organic sprouts and super sweet carrots to fresh eggs and poultry, while also enjoying concession fare including mini donuts, organic coffee, kettle corn, and quesadillas. The market also gives local crafters a venue to sell their work, such as handmade soaps, vintage clothing, and local pine woodwork.

The outdoor market opened Wednesday April 3 and will continue through to October. The Market is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
