Lake Country - For Immediate Release

Buy Local BC and the Okanagan Greens Society are very pleased to announce the arrival of the new 2013 Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Okanagan Map. After more than ten years of success in over a dozen other regions across Canada, we are happy to bring this award winning project to the BC Interior starting in the Okanagan Valley. Fifty participants including 27 farms and over 20 local food businesses, events, and organizations are featured in this first edition of the year round guide to local food. Copies of the new maps are available now free of charge at selected visitor centres, hotels, and participating businesses throughout the Okanagan Valley. Join us in person to celebrate the launch of the new print maps at the Vernon Farmers' Market on Thursday July 11, 2013 from 8 to 1, or at Penticton Farmers' Market on Saturday July 13, 2013 from 8 to 12.
