Efforts are spreading to plant support for farms and orchards with the first Buy Local! Buy Fresh! Thompson Shuswap map.

The map is currently available in the Okanagan, entering its fourth year, but now Buy Local BC has produced a map for the Thompson Shuswap.

The first annual Thompson Shuswap map showcases 50 participants, including 25 farms and more than 20 other listings from Kamloops to Salmon Arm, east to Sicamous, west to Ashcroft, and north to Clearwater. Together, these maps present some of the region’s very best locally produced food and drinks.

The 2016 Okanagan map officially launched at Vernon Farmers’ Market last week.

The inaugural Thompson Shuswap map launched Wednesday evening, July 13 at the Shuswap Farm and Craft Market in downtown Salmon Arm, and Saturday morning, July 16 downtown at Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market.

Free copies of the maps are also available at most visitor centres and hotels, and at many participating businesses throughout the Okanagan and Thompson valleys and the Shuswap.

“After a great day showing this year’s Okanagan map for our traditional opening in Vernon, we’re very excited to launch our first Thompson Shuswap edition in Kamloops and Salmon Arm where support for the new campaign has been amazing,” said Buy Local BC founder and coordinator Shayne Wright.
