A large part of healthy living is eating locally grown foods. It’s more nutritious, contains less (or no) preservatives, and is better for the well-being of our community and environment. In Kelowna, there are plenty of ways to treat your tastebuds to delicious local foods. Whether you prefer to head to a farmer’s market, shop at local grocery stores, or hand-pick your own produce, here are just a few of Kelowna’s options to integrate local food in your life.
Kelowna is known across Canada for producing an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables. Juicy cherries, flavourful carrots, and vibrant herbs are all right outside your door when you own a slice of Kelowna real estate.
Less than a five minute drive from Kestrel Ridge is Arkindale Farm, Twin Oaks Organic Orchard, and Kuipers Family Fruit Farm where you can pick your own feast. If that isn’t enough, Sun City Cherries and Lakeside Orchard are also nearby to help you get your fresh food fix.
There’s something special about browsing the aisles of a local market. It gives you a visceral connection to your neighbours, farmers, and the wider community. And cooking your culinary creations with regional ingredients not only tastes better, but is healthier for the body, mind, and spirit, too.
Aside from the many farmer’s markets around Kelowna, Sunshine Market is close to Kestrel Ridge and offers local eggs, cheeses, meat, and much more. Also, you’ll find South Kelowna Harvest Groceries just 15 minutes from your new home. They, too, offer a wide selection of farm fresh ingredients and foods.
Kestrel Ridge, a luxury paired home community with no strata fees, offers incredible access to Kelowna's best local foods. Our Kelowna real estate is highly sought after for the spectacular views, desirable location, and single level living. Our Brand new show home is open daily from 12-4 pm at 456 Talon Lane. To book outside these hours, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
