Penticton Farmers' Market

  • 100 Block Main Street, Penticton
  • Phone
At our market you can find farm fresh veggies & fruits, eggs, honey, baking, preserves and handmade crafts – all grown or produced in the South Okanagan. Our vendors proudly make, bake or grow everything they bring to the market. 

We are excited that beginning July 1st, 2021 we will be operating under greatly reduced restrictions at the Penticton Farmers’ Market. Although we will still be asking customers to stay away if they are feeling ill and continuing with sanitization measures (hands and surfaces) at each Vendor Stall. 

We would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you, customers and vendors alike who have provided mutual support at the Penticton Farmers’ Market over the past 8 months (2020-2021) that we have been open in a reduced capacity. 

Together, we have made this happen!

Please note that we will be following the latest Gathering and Events Order (released on June 30th) and have confirmed that Episodic Markets (previously listed as of June 22, 2021) are no longer listed within the current Provincial Health Order.

In accordance with information provided to BCAFM from the Ministry of Health, we have confirmed the following:

  • Under the Step 3 BC Restart Plan, farmers’ markets now fall under fairs, festivals and trade shows.
  • Farmers’ markets can operate as before (pre-COVID) with no participant limit. 
  • No requirement for masks (though they are recommended).
  • Barriers (between vendors/between vendors and customers) are at the discretion of farmers’ market organizers.
  • The Penticton Farmers’ Market will move away from our current COVID-19 Safety Plans and prepare a Communicable Diseases Plan (WorkSafe BC) during the month of July. 
  • In the future, if we plan on reintroducing activities within our market, we will be required to follow the guidelines set out in the current PHO as these activities will be considered “events”. Under the June 30, 2021 PHO events means a seated in-person gathering in a place with seating available. 
Signage and markers throughout the market will remind customers to regularly wash or sanitize their hands and wash their produce when they return home. The washrooms at LINK RD. will be available during the Market. 
Pets are again allowed at the Penticton Farmers’ Market. However, with record temperatures predicted over this 2021 Summer we are concerned about their health and safety. When the temperatures hit close to or over 30 degrees the pavement registers much hotter and the pads of the paws can burn very easily. Please consider this before bringing your Pets to the Market.
Typically, the Penticton Farmers’ Market would have up to 80 vendors each week and we are pleased that we are quickly getting back to Pre-COVID 19 Pandemic vendor attendance. Please check out our Vendor page for more information on our amazing mix of vendor participants. 
**Please note that the 100 block of Main Street in Penticton will be closed to all vehicle traffic on Saturdays from 6am-2pm until October 30th, 2021.**
The Penticton Farmer’s Market is separate and distinct from the Downtown Penticton Community Market.
