If you are sick, please stay home. 

Apple picking around Vancouver is an activity that needs to be a part of your plans this upcoming season.

Picking your own fruit is an annual tradition in British Columbia, and with autumn fast approaching, there will soon be plenty of plump apples ready to be plucked straight from the tree.

Although there are a ton of day-trip-worthy farm destinations near Vancouver, there are only a few places where you can pick your own apples.

Thankfully, these pick-your-own (PYO) farms also offer homemade baked goods, petting zoos, corn mazes, and other attractions during harvest season — so the drive is well worth it.

Here’s where to go apple picking near Vancouver.

In Abbotsford, this orchard and country market offers PYO fruit. Find apple varieties including Honeycrisp, Alkmene, and Gala, plus more varieties for sale in the market too. Please don’t bring your own U-Pick containers here, as Taves provides bags.
