Local Food & Farms

The Shuswap is home to a wide variety of organic and locally grown produce, which is available often from the food producers themselves, in select stores, in farmers’ markets not to mention the many restaurants and eateries throughout the region.The Shuswap is an avid supporter of local agriculture and generational family businesses. There are farm stands and farm markets throughout the region. It’s hard to pick just one so we suggest checking all of them out and making a day of it. Fair warning, it’ll work up an appetite.
