Vernon is alive with treats to tantalize your taste buds and has become well known on the flavour trail as a foodie haven (or heaven!). Places to eat here are many and varied - prepare for a tasty stay!
Situated in the heart of Okanagan fruit and vegetable country - Canada's fruit basket as we like to call it - we have plenty of wonderful produce to work with. Little wonder that our chefs love to use local ingredients and that our eateries are full of surprises with home grown flavours as well as exotic foods taking inspiration from around the world. Choose from local-hero farm to fork restaurants, quaint bistros, ethnic flavours, five star cuisine, nationwide and local coffee shops, fast food, pubs, food trucks and pizza parlours.
We're also proud of our wide variety of award winning wines, tasty ciders, fine spirits, and exotic teas. Everything is made with quality ingredients, with most grown in the Vernon area. The influencing elements of soil, climate and geography create a unique terroir that adds to the rich flavours of our craft beverage industry.
Hit the Vernon Tasting Trail, spend a lazy afternoon sipping wines, or shop at local farmers' markets to prepare your own feast at home. Whatever you do, prepare tp spend at least a day, (or two or three) sampling the unique flavours of Vernon.
