In support of local small businesses that are one of the majorly impacted businesses due to the lockdown and quarantine. I went out to create better awareness of local businesses with hopes more people support them in this time of difficulty.
You can get out and enjoy farmers markets from Lake Country to Peachland each day of the weekend starting Friday to Sunday as well as Wednesday.
This month I went down to the Kelowna Farmers Market where its a great place to get locally sourced and produced items.
Here is some information I found out.
• One particular farm generates up to 65% of there yearly income from local farmers markets.
•85-90 vendors currently, down from 165 last year
•You can enjoy the Farmers Markets 4 days a week. (Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
• Hand sanitizer at each vendor
• One-way roads to help social distancing
• Organizers walking around to ensure people obeying social distancing
