Not Just for Farmers!

Easy access to local produce is one of the many reasons people choose to live in Vernon. With so many people talking and thinking about eating locally, BC has seen a huge increase in Farmers Markets around the province. According to the B.C. Association of Farmers Markets, the increase in Farmers Markets around BC is 62% this year!

 

And in the Okanagan, we are doing our share. We now have 5 local markets available 5 days a week:
