A little taste of the tropics has arrived in Salmon Arm! DeMille’s Farm Market is now offering Hawaiian Shaved Ice to bring your taste buds to a whole new level of deliciousness!

Hawaiian Shaved Ice is entirely different from standard shaved ice – starting with a scoop of vanilla ice cream buried in the centre of the cone, the ice is shaved, versus crushed, around the ice cream and sumptuous syrup flavorings create a sweet, semi-thick concoction that is undeniably the best taste of summer a person can have!

DeMille’s Farm Market is located on the TransCanada Highway on the west side of Salmon Arm. Look for the water tower and you’re there! Open 7 days a week from 8:00 am – 7:30 pm.
