The Bench Artisan Market, Penticton

The Bench Market is set at the entrance to the much-travelled Naramata Bench winery route and conveniently located just up the hill from the market and next to the KVR trail. The Bench offers daily light breakfast, weekend brunch, baked goods, gourmet lunch, catering and grocery– along with the best coffee in town, made using locally-roasted organic beans from Summerland’s Backyard Beans. Their healthy menu items are made from scratch using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients. All meats and eggs are from BC-raised, ethically treated animals. Don’t miss out on Chef Stewart Glynes’ artisan doughnuts made on Fridays – and look for the Bench at Penticton’s Saturday community market this summer!

The shelves feature a wide variety of unique, local artisan items including honey, preserves, dressings, spices and herbs, sauces, chips, crackers and the ever-popular Bench-made granolas. Check out the deli fridges for grab & go sandwiches, cheese, meats, dips and olives,plus lots of takeaway dinner options. No trip to Penticton is complete without a visit to the Bench Market.
