In the locavore-minded community of the Tualatin Valley, our farmers, chefs and food servers are supremely tied to the land, the food our area produces, and the farm-to-table experience that food provides for locals and visitors alike. We’d tell you to make a point to explore the winter farm fun of the Tualatin Valley during your visit, but the truth is that we don’t have to—our farming and food culture is an organic (pun intended) part of any person’s stay.

On Saturdays, February through May, the Beaverton Winter Market proves that even winter has its own colorful bounty. Veggie lovers can look for purple cabbage, yellow squashes, and shades of green from the wide variety of kale, leeks and pears.

Helvetia Farm Market at Marion Acres is located on a working livestock farm. The farm store stocks local produce, bread, charcuterie and pasture-raised meats. The store also has an espresso bar, selection of local beer and wine, handcrafted goods and more.

While the u-pick fields are closed for the season, Smith Berry Barn is open for the winter Fridays through Sundays. Stop into their farm store for espresso and milkshakes, as well as jams, syrups and other gourmet foods.

Located not far from Smith Berry Barn, and nestled amongst the vineyards of Tualatin Valley, is 19 Acres Cider Co.’s tasting room, located in a converted horse barn thoughtfully updated with reclaimed wood accents and modern touches. This cider company produces hard cider from apples grown at their farm, Oregon Heritage Farm, which is just three miles from the tasting room.
Breathe in the fresh air of rural Tualatin Valley with a drive along the Vineyard and Valley Scenic Tour Route. This self-guided tour through farm country includes roadside crop signs, charming taverns and classic general stores.

Enjoy the bounty of the Tualatin Valley as much as our farms and markets enjoy growing and sharing it.
