the Bench Market

theBench Artisan Food Market is a top food destination in the South Okanagan, serving comfort food with a twist!

theBench offers light breakfast, baked goods, gourmet lunch, takeaway meals, catering, and numerous gourmet market items - along with the best coffee in town, made using fresh-roasted organic beans from Backyard Beans in Summerland.

We have the greatest staff: hardworking, energetic, service-oriented and knowledgeable. We are committed to using local, fresh ingredients to make our healthy menu items from scratch. Our meats and eggs are from BC-raised, ethically treated animals. And our shelves are stocked with a wide variety of unique grocery and retail items including our ever-popular house-made granolas. We support our local farmers, artisans and wineries, and constantly work to increase and strengthen our community partnerships.

We invite you to stop by for a coffee and a bite to eat, grab a takeaway meal, or pick up some of our wonderful artisan grocery items. Let us custom-cater your next business function or private event. Join us at "The Bench Market" on Facebook to learn more about daily features and to see what we're up to in the community. And watch for us at upcoming fairs and other events.

Come and see how we're "keeping it local and making it fresh!"
