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!"
