Find the perfect gift for your loved ones on the Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail this holiday season!

The Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail showcases the farms that grow the fresh and delicious produce that fill our restaurants, the hops, grapes, and more that go into our wines, craft beers, and distilleries, the wools that go into clothes, fiber arts, and more. It features farm stands and farmers markets, restaurants that specialize in farm-to-table dining, Oregon wine, craft brews, ranches, and so much more.

The working farms, heritage sites, historic locations and other stops along this trail provide unique and engaging experiences - and frequently, gift shops.

With the holiday season upon us, many of us are making our lists and checking them twice, and getting ready to head out and get some shopping done. If you're on the hunt for special gifts for your friends and loved ones, browse the Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail's shops and stores for fascinating finds and perfect presents.
