The Market

Fresh ingredients, quality food.
Conscious nourishment paired with real food drives Big Ben Specialty Market to serve you. The 5,500 square foot space functions as a wholesome source of locally grown produce and sustainably raised meats from local purveyors, as well as a place for National City residents to enjoy made-from-scratch, healthy meals or quality plates from Grill House at Big Ben, our in-house restaurant.
Our team at Big Ben is eager to educate you about fresh, local foods with innovative demonstrations led by San Diego’s best chefs, as well as recommend ingredients for healthy make-at-home recipes. A knowledgeable staff actively involved in the community makes for a simple yet enlightening market experience, each and every visit.
We offer fine wines, craft beers and liquors in addition to an extensive selection of high quality food available within the Market and Grill House at Big Ben. We invite you to enjoy freshly made pasta, hot BBQ and lasagna from the deli and other delectable fare from Grill House at Big Ben outside on the expansive patio. Or, if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to cook, choose a grab-and-go meal to eat at home.
