Enjoy a warm welcome at our distinctive shops and spas.

You've tasted the wine, sampled the fresh fruits and vegetables, and photographed the quirky attractions. So what's left to do in the Yakima Valley? Why, shop, of course! It may be best known for its wineries and produce stands, but the Valley's hidden gems are its distinctive shops and friendly merchants.

Start with the Visitor Information Center on Fair Avenue at the edge of downtown Yakima, which offers more than just maps and tips for traveling the Valley. The gift shop represents a who's who of local products, from Yakima Valley wines to chocolate-covered cherries, plus handcrafted jewelry and accessories from around the world.
