Spall Plaza is another destination full of restaurants, stores and services.

Oliver and Osoyoos are separated by orchards, vineyards and a not so long stretch of highway. Both communities boast locally owned and operated one-of-a-kind shops. Be sure to stop by one of the many wine shops that line the roadside. Taking home a bottle of wine from here is an absolute must. Boutiques line Main Street from one end to the other in Osoyoos. So many shopping opportunities and so little time... Looks like you will have to come back for another visit and try to satisfy your shopping enthusiasm.
