About Us


about us

The Bench Market

The Bench Market is a top food destination in the South Okanagan!


We offer all-day breakfast, weekend brunch, baked goods, gourmet lunch, takeaway meals, catering and grocery – along with the best coffee in town, made using locally-roasted organic beans. 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. Farmers and artisans from the region bring their seasonal produce & goods right to our door. And our shelves are stocked with a wide variety of unique artisan grocery and retail items including our ever-popular house-made granolas.


Come and see how we’re “keeping it local and making it fresh!”
