Known as the “earliest fruit in Canada,” a stop at any roadside stand or u-pick farm will delight your senses and bring back nostalgic memories of that perfectly picked strawberry, cherry or peach.
If that doesn’t satisfy your fruit ﬁx, visitors can also ﬁnd culinary and craft delights at the Osoyoos Farmers’ Market on Main Street.
Shop from over 35 local bakers, artisans, farmers and craftspeople every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm until September 18.

And, after all your adventures and exploration of this wonderful region, there is nothing more relaxing than simply soaking up the sunshine on any of the warm, welcoming beaches as the sparkling lake and desert hills surround you.
