Local Items

At Market of Choice, we believe every decision we make has a ripple effect, which is why we carry more than 7,000 products from Oregon farmers, ranchers and food producers, so that you can too. Buying local is not only good for the environment – it takes less energy to transport goods that are made nearby – it’s also an easy way to support our state’s economy. When customers make that same choice, they help sustain Oregon businesses, their families and their employees. It’s a full-circle philosophy that translates into a healthier community.

Here are ten local businesses you can support on your next shopping trip!
