A look at a bountiful harvest sale at a Vernon elementary school, circa 1955

North Okanagan communities are blessed with an abundance of riches in terms of home-grown food, on display at farmers’ markets each week throughout the region.

The Greater Vernon Museum and Archives provided a photo from a fall harvest sale at Beairsto Elementary School in 1955.

“I seem to recall we had a similar type sale every fall,” said Morning Star reporter Roger Knox, 57, who attended Beairsto from 1969-76. “I remember the table being set up outside at the back of the school, or under the shelter, and there was everything from fruits and vegetables to home-baked goods.”
