Buy Local BC is pleased to announce the arrival of the 6th Annual 2018 Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Okanagan Map and the 3rd Annual 2018 Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Thompson Shuswap Map. This year's campaign includes over 125 listings including 77 farms across the two new editions of your year-round map and guide to local food.

The 3rd Annual Thompson Shuswap map showcases 50 participants from Kamloops to Salmon Arm, east to Sicamous, west to Ashcroft & Lillooet, and north to Clearwater. The latest Okanagan map features over 75 participants between Osoyoos, the Similkameen Valley, north to Armstrong. Together, these maps present some of our region’s finest locally produced food and drinks, along with events and services, and great ideas for visiting or touring many of the producers and farms.

The 2018 Okanagan map officially launched at Vernon Farmers’ Market on June 28th. The 2018 Thompson Shuswap map launched June 30th at Salmon Arm and Shuswap area markets starting in Sorrento Village Farmers' Market. Free copies of the maps are also available at most visitor centres and hotels, and at many participating businesses throughout the Okanagan Valley, the Thompson Valleys, and the Shuswap.

"This year was our earliest campaign opening yet, and we're very happy to have the new maps out for the start of summer. We'll be looking forward to going out again through the season for more market visits and events," said Buy Local BC founder and coordinator Shayne Wright.
