Fruit season is finally here in the Central Okanagan!
These are my favourite Kelowna area fruit farms/markets below! I've got no association with any of them sponsorship wise, it's just places I know care, and places I go myself!
1) DON-O-RAY FARMS - HTTPS://WWW.DONORAYFARMS.COM
Here's some pictures from my recent visit to Don-O-Ray Farms! They have an amazing market with great selections & prices. They pick fresh daily!
It is located only 10 minutes from Downtown Kelowna, and ample parking! Tons of kids activities including: Petting Zoo, Bouncy Area, Hedge Maze, and much more! Plus ice cream!
2) ARNDT ORCHARDS - HTTPS://WWW.ARNDTORCHARDS.COM
I love Arndt Orchards because you can pick your own fruit and have an amazing view of Downtown Kelowna! Maybe a 15-20 minute drive from downtown, but totally worth it!
3) FUNCTION JUNCTION FRUIT STAND - 811 Hwy 33, Kelowna, BC V1X 6V1
This is a nice little family run fruit stand, you need to get here early in the day as they do sell out. But, it has that rustic non-commercialized feel that I like! They do take plastic cards though ;)
Here are my top Fruit Farm/Stand picks for my area of the Okanagan I grew up in Lake Country!
1) GATZKE ORCHARDS - HTTPS://WWW.GATZKEORCHARD.COM
My Grandparents friends growing up in Oyama! I send everyone here to check out the amazing location between Kalamalka & Wood Lake! You name it they have it: Bike Rentals, Woodfire Pizza, Cool Old Tractors, and the most amazing fruits and experiences!
2) AB FARM - HTTPS://BIT.LY/3L6OBHV
This is the rustic place I try to tell everyone about on my tour! They grow the most amazing fruit and vegetables, and were literal neighbours to my grandparents.
As you can see, in the shop you go inside the store where they have fridges and everything stored, it is serve yourself, and the honour system for payment. My favourite place to go, as it doesn't get any closer to farm to table than this!
The tours are still going strong this July! Thank you to everyone who has joined me this summer, I've been loving the weather, and hoping it stays this way for all my guests and visitors this summer!
In a couple weeks I'll check back in with an update of some pictures/video from the tour over the month of July!
