Buy Local BC and the Okanagan Greens Society are very pleased to announce the arrival of the new 3rd Annual 2015 Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Okanagan Map, your year-round map and guide to local food. This year's expanded edition includes more farms than ever.

Featuring more than 70 participants, including 44 farms and over 25 local food businesses, the 2015 map showcases some of our region’s very best local food. The new 2015 map officially launched at Vernon Farmers’ Market on July 9. Free copies of the maps are available at most visitor centres and hotels, and at many participating businesses throughout the Okanagan Valley.

"We chose to launch the 2015 edition in our traditional opening location in Vernon, and we'll also be at Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market July 11 to honour the market’s 20th birthday this year," explains Buy Local BC founder and coordinator Shayne Wright.
