It's hard to believe that Lakeview Market has been on the corner of KLO and Pandosy since 1946. Bill Jones and his wife Barbara bought the store in 1968 and it's still in the Jones family today. Lakeview Market continues to be committed to the old-fashioned values of customer service and quality product at a reasonable price.
Our motto "If you want to shop locally, we have already done it for you" relates to how we pride ourselves in providing locally produced products in all areas of our store. Lakeview Market has assisted many local companies in getting their start by selling their products and can help you in your quest for a hundred mile diet. As an example Little Creek Salad Dressing was first sold at Lakeview Market and is now a very successful company and in return we now sell it at best price available.
We are very proud of our scratch bakery. Our bakers Rory and Dave believe in making all of our breads and a variety of buns from scratch from the real basic ingredients. Many in-house created items include quiches, spanakopita and Cornish pasties made preservative-free. Many people who have the pleasure of working in our neighbourhood know that Monday to Friday Lakeview Market has the best-value (read: cheap and big) made that day sandwiches. In addition to our sandwiches we have Caesar salad (with fresh cooked chicken breast and homemade croutons) or Greek salad (made with our fresh produce). Come in and speak with our friendly bakery staff next time you need a cake for that special occasion or a free cookie for the youngster with you while you shop.
Our Friendly Butcher
Brad and Kim are a team that has worked together for over 18 years and are ready to answer any of your meat preparation questions. Customers have said that we have leaner ground beef then other stores but they might not know why…it’s because we grind our own… if you can’t see Brad when you come in, maybe he is inside the cooler dancing with the meat grinder. The Lakeview Market meat department will always take care and help you get that perfect cut of meat for dinner. Call to order your fresh free range turkey before the gobble gobble holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Our Local Produce
When items are in season in the lovely and fertile Okanagan Valley come and get them at Lakeview Market. We buy from so many local farmers it would be hard to name them all but Jason and Ed know them on a first name basis. During peak season over half of our produce section is from the Okanagan Valley and over ¾ of it is grown in BC. Like Jason says “Anything that is grown locally, we will have it at Lakeview Market”.
