“I come every weekend to showcase rooibos tea and will continue to come on Wednesdays as well. I think Kelowna’s market is the best because it is so big and people from all over come to get fresh goods,” said Cape De Hoop Tea owner Arno Bredenkamp.

People can come shop for jams, soaps, dressings and fresh produce every Saturday and Wednesday until the season ends in September.

Here’s more on the local farmers market.
