One of the best places in Kamloops to stop and do a bit of shopping is the Kamloops Farmers' Market .  For the most part, the items bought here are food products intended to be eaten upon purchase.  Fresh bakery items and locally grown fruits and vegetables are at the top of the list of things to buy.  However, there are occasionally local handicrafts and there are always long-lasting food items, so travelers should be able to find something to take home with them.  The farmers' market is not a store with an actual location but instead an open air market which takes place in the city center on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  This is a seasonal shopping event which begins in April of each year and continues through October.

Of course, Kamloops also has more traditional shopping options.   Sporting goods stores are found in abundance in the area because sports are so commonly enjoyed there.   Local shops and malls offer more traditional shopping fare in terms of items such as jewelry and fashion.   Travelers seeking information about different types of stores located all throughout Kamloops will likely find the best resources to be the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce business directory .
