Paynter's Fruit Market
Just a quick jaunt off Route 97 in historic Westbank, Paynter's Fruit Market pays tribute to the farm fresh goodness of the Valley. A member of Kelowna's Farm to Table initiative, and the Westside Farm Loop, this quaint market is best described as an agricultural exhibit featuring original works by Mother Nature.
A family-run business, the Paynter's are pioneering members of the community. Collaborating with local farmers their shelves are stocked with unique and flavourful offerings .
We enjoy our trips to Paynter's and plan our meals around their seasonal offerings. Our favourite time to visit is early fall when plump peaches, plums and apples wrestle with melons and squash for counter space and a spot at the table. Oh come on, who are we kidding - there's always room at our table for everyone.
Valley Vagabonds Inside TipThe Paynter family have worked the land for over 60 years. Along with the Market they also own the groovy organic winery cum yoga studio, Off The Grid, featured in SIPS West Kelowna.
