Lake life with the family in Kelowna is hard to beat. Delicious fresh fruit from the market, boating on Okanagan Lake, and tasty ice cream.
Most locals that grew up in the valley can remember those carefree summer days, once school was out and the fruits became ripe on the neighbourhood trees. Well, that time of year is back!
Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up and here in the Okanagan, we are lucky to be able to create a completely locally sourced feast.
When I moved to the Okanagan in 2014, I was most surprised by the number of orchards, markets, and fruit stands, and the easy access to locally grown fruits and vegetables.

One huge benefit of the Kelowna lifestyle is the availability of fresh produce and fruit at countryside markets and fruit stands. The Okanagan climate provides a long, hot growing season well suited to tree fruits, vegetable gardens and vineyards.
Kelowna's summer heat can leave you thirsty and with cherry season in full swing, it's the perfect time to make cherry cocktails. Cool off with these delicious locally inspired drinks using Okanagan grown cherries.
