Jumpstart your morning at West Salem Farmers Market, open Thursdays from May to mid-September, where you’ll find fresh produce and handmade products.
Continue to the picturesque Eola-Amity Hills and Bjornson Vineyard, where you can bring your own picnic to enjoy alfresco near the property’s 20-foot waterfall. If you’re in the mood for craft beer, stick to West Salem’s Xicha Brewing to indulge your senses in Latin American flavors and culture.
Make your way to Amity to Blue Raeven Farmstand, a must-stop for handmade seasonal pies and local goods. Next, take a scenic drive out to Brooks Winery to sample award-winning sustainable wines in a rustic tasting room. Round out your afternoon with smiles at Wings & A Prayer Alpacas, where you can meet alpacas or shop for the softest socks and scarves you’ll ever own.
Continue to Dallas for a pick-me-up – caffeine at Karma Coffee Bar & Bakery, or a sweet treat of local sheep’s milk ice cream at Dreamies Creamery. Finish out the day in Falls City with a knife forging demonstration at VonHelmick Knife Co. and handmade wood-fired pizza at The Bread Board. Return to Amity and rest easy in your top-floor flat for an overnight stay at Amity Flats, a restored historic Masonic Lodge
