Fernandes Fruit Market began when Joe and Maria Fernandes came from Madeira Portugal to the Sunny Osoyoos Valley in 1959. The following 40 years saw the Fernandes orchards, fruit stand, and family grow. Joe remembered growing bananas, sugar cane, and other tropical fruit in Portugal and he dreamed of doing the same thing here. This dream was realized in 1980 when Joe built the only banana farm in all of Canada. In the hot house he had over 500 banana trees, sugar cane, lemon and orange trees and many other exotic plants, and the tourists who visited thought this was just GREAT! After Joe's death, the bananas were discontinued, but the Fruit Stand is still running. Now, Fernandes Fruit Market is owned by Joe and Maria's 7 children who proudly showcase local fresh fruit and vegetables, honey, jams and syrups.
Fernandes Farms also includes a hot house, and a growing Packing House business where fruit and vegetables are sold to the wholesale market.

Come and visit Helen, Laura, Lucy, Joe, Cidalia, Tom and Greg Fernandes at Fernandes Fruit Market.
