The Bench Market


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

The Bench Market is set at the entrance to the much-travelled Naramata Bench winery route. We offer daily breakfast, weekend brunch, baked goods, lunch, takeaway meals, catering, and grocery - along with the best coffee in town, made using locally-roasted organic beans. The healthy menu items are made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. All meats and eggs are from BC-raised, ethically treated animals. And the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of unique, local artisan grocery items. Stop by and see how we're "keeping it local and making it fresh!"

Before touring the wineries each day, the Bench Market was our breakfast home away from home. Fun, friendly staff. Fabulous coffee. Fresh-baked fruit scones and muffins to die for....yum!

Everything was from scratch and well prepared. We were surprised by the range of options for brunch! Even our pickiest son was delighted by what he ordered. Was very busy but worth the wait.

After visiting a few wineries, we thought we'd stop here and see what they had for a charcuterie style dinner we were having a craving for. There is an active restaurant and coffee shop, but also a large selection of BC products, primarily bottled sauces...More
