Check Out Unique Boutiques and Shops All Around the Yakima Valley

The countdown is on for holiday shopping. We have the lineup of some of the locals’ favorite shopping stops. Check out our list and explore Yakima Valley boutiques or shops you may not have visited before. Perhaps visit a winery or brewery new to you and send Yakima Valley craft beverages to family and friends you may not see this season. Or, send flavors of the Valley from local farm markets.

Something New!

Brand new this year, Yakima Valley Tourism has opened a new visitors center and gift shop located inside the main entrance of the Valley Mall. Along with our exiting visitors center, both locations curate locally made goods from throughout the Valley, including hand-selected gift baskets perfect for sharing with family, friends and business associates this holiday season. Stop by and pick up a pre-filled gift basket or place orders for custom gift baskets filled of Yakima Valley-made treats, products and local wine or brews. They offer in-town delivery and can ship baskets for you (wine and beer must be excluded from shipped baskets). In addition to baskets, both locations have a brand-new selection of attire, such Yakima Valley Hop Country and Wine Country t-shirts. And as always, both locations are your go-to stops for the inside scoop about what’s happening around the Yakima Valley.
