Okanagan Fruit Stands and U-Picks
The Okanagan is known for its fruit and because of this, roadside fruit stands and u-pick orchards abound. Crops include delicious peaches, cherries, plums, apricots, strawberries, pears, apples and so much more.
Fruits and vegetables that you find at fruit stands are picked daily, so you can’t beat the freshness! While I’m sure I don’t have every single fruit stand and U-Pick orchard listed, you will find many along major roads as you’re driving through the valley.
