Raw food lets natural flavours speak for themselves, unlike cooked cuisine, which insists on beeping loudly when it's finished in the microwave. Feast on fresh fare with this Groupon.

Paynter's Fruit Market
In 1926, Henry Paynter purchased a patch of land, cleared it of pine trees and underbrush, and planted an orchard of fruit trees. He was only 19 years old, and since then, the harvest has sustained four generations of his family, who still own the Okanagan Valley orchards and run a charming fruit market on the original acreage of land.
The market, open from July through November, stocks freshly picked fruits at their prime—before they can make failed solo albums, such as I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Again. The market allows patrons to pick their own seasonally available fruit, as ripe plums, melons, squash, apples, cherries, zucchini, corn, and beets line the shelves, releasing fragrant aromas and inviting creative cooks to dream of jams, crumbles, and stews. The shop also stocks other local foodstuffs, including 26 flavours of Island Farms and Foothills Creamery ice cream, Basswood honey and Westbank Harvest apple juice.
