various locations throughout the Okanagan: Fresh fruit for sale
A summertime trip to the Okanagan wouldn't be the same without gorging on fresh local peaches and cherries and corn, and taking a good haul home with you if possible. There are roadside fruit stands throughout the Okanagan. It should be noted that the old-fashioned casual roadside stall are becoming more rare and increasingly replaced by sophisticated permanent shops that sell cold drinks and snacks, local honey, jams, ciders and confections, in addition to the traditional fruit. These newer 'stands' can be as pricey as buying fruit from a supermarket so check your prices before you buy. Picking your own fruit is still the cheapest way to go and the fruit is so abundant in the summer that it's not a difficult or even time-consuming job. In our family it is considered a fun activity to look forward to.
