Paynter's Market Westbank B.C.

We make it a tradition every summer to visit Paynter's Fruit Market as often as we can. They are Westbank's best fruit stand and a tourist attraction for many reasons. They have fresh fruit grown right here in the Okanagan most of it grown right on the Paynter farm. This place has everything from  jams to hot sauce, chips, and honey, and so much more and all of it is 100% local. The views and decor is something you would see in a book, it is stunning to just look out at the orchards and see the beautiful fruit trees and beautiful mountains in the backdrop. 
The ice cream they sell is out of this world and they have a ton of options. They have stuff even for those who are lactose intolerant and they make fresh waffle cones right in front of you. The smell is so amazing. There is nothing better then watching your happy little kids slurping back their ice cream on a hot summer day. 

They have flower baskets hanging everywhere and the option to go on a u-pick adventure through the orchard. They have washrooms and sinks for washing when your done picking or getting sticky from ice cream. They have pretty much everything a tourist attraction needs including maps and brochures to take away as souvenirs. I love this place and plan on going a few more times before summer ends. 

They also have an amazing pumpkin patch for fall that the kids love! For more information and some great recipes check them out here:
