Eat & Drink

When you ask someone from Albany where to find the best local food and drink, don’t be surprised if you get something more like a dissertation than a recommendation. Linn County is located in center of the Willamette Valley—one of the most fertile growing regions in the world—and restaurateurs and residents alike get passionate about fresh-caught and just-harvested food.

  • Farms + Farm Stands. In Albany, you can pick out your own produce at a farm stand or farmers market for a true farm-to-table experience.
  • Restaurants. If you’d rather taste the work of one of our culinary artisans, visit one of our many local restaurants. You’re sure to find something Oregon-inspired and delicious.
  • Wine, Beer & Spirits. For the perfect wine or beer to accompany your local meal, you don’t have to look far. Head for one of the more than 300 vineyards in the area and find out for yourself why Oregon is one of the world’s great Pinot Noir regions. If wine’s not your beverage of choice, you can sip local microbrews, ciders, or spirits at one of the Willamette Valley’s thriving breweries and distilleries.Coffee, tea, or something sweet for dessert? We’ve got that too.
  • Food Tours & Events. If you can’t decide which eatery to try, join an Albany Nosh Tour: a vintage trolley carries visitors through town, stopping for tastings from several restaurants. It’s a uniquely Albany culinary experience. Or stop by during one of our annual food-focused festivals, like the Albany Wine Walk or the Lebanon Strawberry Festival. Any time of the year, you’ll find something tasty in Albany, Oregon.
