In the valley
Kelowna is the unofficial capital of the Okanagan Valley. It’s a city woven together by vine-covered valleys that tumble into the sun-dappled Okanagan Lake, in British Columbia. There are wineries everywhere, fruit trees, beekeepers, lavender farms and cheese makers galore. The whole area is like the best-ever farmers’ market come to life on a massive scale. Local produce ends up in everything from wine in the glass to a warm peach and cherry cobbler cooling on the stovetop. We happily ate our way through this agriculturally gifted region.
