About the Market

A visit to Kelowna Farmers and Crafters Market is never the same twice. It makes going to this four-season market a fun and unique experience. You’ll find quality local products offered directly by local vendors in this clean, safe, family-friendly environment.
Treat this market as a destination rather than a shopping trip. In addition to a wide assortment of seasonal farm produce, locally made food, beverages, and locally-crafted items, the market also hosts special events.

Entry is ultra-affordable – free. With over 100 booths, leaving empty-handed is challenging. Depending on your budget, the market features a wide variety of items and price points. For example:

– Fresh seasonal vegetables, fruits, herbs (basically, if it’s grown or harvested locally, you’ll find it at this market)
– Local fresh or dried flower bouquets
– Beverages from locally roasted coffee to tea and juice
– Meat, fish, sausage
– Jams, pickles, jellies, salsa, honey
– Plants
– Hand-crafted jewellery, woodwork, pottery, home décor
– Beauty products

Due to earlier warm spring temperatures in Kelowna, you will be surprised with how early some local produce is accessible.

Market vendors are experts in their products. Oftentime they are happy to share how they grow their food, make their goods, or how best to use, prepare, and eat what they sell. Prices vary depending on the vendor and goods sold. Some raw produce items are priced comparatively to other places that sell similar fruits and vegetables, whereas others are a slightly higher price reflecting freshness, uniqueness, availability.
