Tade, Oakley and grandmother Lorraine Tonneson size up the cherries for sale at Souto Farms stand at the Ponoka Farmer’s Market Aug.1.

Owner Alvin Souto said there has been quite a bit of rain and hail in the Okanagan where they farm, which has made it tough on the amount of fruit from there. “The prices haven’t changed but there is less quantity,” he said.

Ponoka is their first stop for their markets and it’s “always our freshest market.”
