Asparagus season is here! And I plan to eat it each and every day while it is in season. My favourite way to prepare asparagus is lightly brushed with olive oil, grilled on the barbeque and then topped with Maldon sea salt and lemon zest or balsamic vinegar. Love it in pasta, perfect in a panini with goat cheese, excellent as a pesto or starring in a frittata or omelette. I am just mad about asparagus!

The foundation of the agriculture industry here in Kelowna began on lush orchards offering top quality tree fruits for the community. Cideries have found a way to promote the natural attributes of the Okanagan apple by transforming them into a delicious drink.

I love everything that the Cipes family does. Lead by Stephen Cipes, the proprietors of this destination winery have built a beautiful empire where they feature the very best of what the Okanagan has to offer while maintaining solid grass roots.

Every holiday feast in the Okanagan should be a celebration of the bounty that we grow and produce here. We have the unique opportunity to eat and drink almost exclusively local so let’s do it! Creating at totally local holiday feast is easy and a one-stop-shop at the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market.

Bean Scene Latte

Kelowna’s Bean Scene Coffee Works has become THE coffee scene in town. Now offering four locations (downtown, Landmark, Capri Mall, and Pandosy Village plus a Big White shop) the Bean Scene team has created its own culture and hub for locals to sip, work, chat and hang--with or without others.


Sterling Springs Chicken is owned and operated by Lisa and Hans Dueck based in Falkland BC. Their chicken truck can be found  bi-weekly at the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market currently on Springfield.
