BC Fruit and Taber Corn, Calgary: 1 reviews and 1 photos

  Fresh fruit and veggies
by penumbra

You see them at the edges of shopping malls or along the side of a street during the summer. Fruit and vegetable stands with signs that read “BC Fruit” or “Taber Corn”. “BC Fruit” implies fruit grown in the interior of the province of British Columbia. Anyone who has driven through BC probably has fond memories of stopping at fresh fruit stands that line the highways by the orchards. The fruit stands that make it to Calgary are much smaller, maybe the size of a pickup truck, and may or may not be from BC. Similarly, Taber is a small community in southern Alberta well known for its corn. All roadside vegetable vendors are marketed as “Taber Corn” whether or not it actually came from that area. Still, if you’re in the market for fruits and vegetables and see a roadside stand, it doesn’t hurt to stop and check the goods.

Directions: Usually at the corners of shopping malls
