Dining at this time of year is an absolute treat. Thanks to the invention of heating lamps, coupled with cozy blankets, the Okanagan embraces sunshine and the great outdoors throughout the harvest season with many patios that remain open throughout October and November.

Farm to Table Food in Kelowna

Fall is a wonderful time of year to visit restaurants in Kelowna. How can you not feel good about sitting down to a meal knowing the head chef and his team scoured the local farmer’s market that morning selecting fresh produce and other ingredients for its preparation?

Okanagan Feast of Fields takes place this year on Sunday, August 13th and truly is one of the foodie events of the year. Each year at this movable feast, the Okanagan’s best chefs, farmers, artisans and wine and drink makers gather together on a beautiful farm.

One Day in Kelowna

If you only had one, just one day to spend in Kelowna here are a few of the many must-see attractions and venues.  (You really should stay longer or start planning your next holiday though!) 

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!

This Saturday, April 1st is when the Kelowna Farmers' and Crafters' Market returns to their outdoor location at the corner of Springfield Rd and Dilworth Dr. Officially marking the undeniable signal that spring has arrived in Kelowna. 

Nothing tastes better than fresh, local ingredients so I like to shop at the various local farms, orchards, and markets in Kelowna and area. At this time of year, a great one-stop shop is at the Kelowna Indoor Farmers Market. The Kelowna Outdoor Farmers Market opens April 1st. Several of the below items can be picked up at the Kelowna Farmers’ & Crafters' MarketQuality Greens Farm Market, and Codfathers Seafood Market
