British Columbia's 2022 cranberry harvest is underway

British Columbia's cranberry season started on September 23rd with the first berries for the fresh market being harvested. Harvest was a bit delayed this year due to a cool wet spring, but the industry expects an average crop year. Next week many more producers will start to harvest berries that will end up in juices, sauces, sweetened dried cranberries (Craisins) and more.

“Harvest is on target with quality and quantity and we wish all growers a safe and productive harvest,” says Kalpna Solanki, chairman of the BC Cranberry Marketing Commission.

Next week many more B.C. cranberry producers will start to harvest berries that will end up in juices, sauces, sweetened dried cranberries (Craisins) and more.

Cranberry harvest in B.C. offers consumers an opportunity to purchase fresh B.C. cranberries at farmer’s markets and local supermarkets for Thanksgiving-–look for the Ocean Spray cranberries to support local growers. Consumers can also purchase fresh product directly from B.C. grower vendors at The Bog in Langley, Yellow Point Cranberries in Ladysmith and Hopcott Farms in Pitt Meadows.

The annual Cranberry Festival in Fort Langley, celebrating its 27th year, will happen Saturday, October 8th starting at 10 a.m. Head over to 9160 Glover Road early to purchase fresh cranberries and enjoy family fun.

Cranberries are available year-round and can be found fresh, frozen, dried or in juice. Visit www.bccranberries.com for delicious recipe ideas to enjoy these crimson gems this Thanksgiving and throughout the year.
