Great Umpqua Food Trail
YOUR GUIDE TO FARMERS’ MARKETS, RIVERSCAPES AND BOUTIQUE WINERIES
Heading out on a Southern Oregon road trip and need a great cup of coffee, an amazing farm-to-table dinner or a tasting room with a view around Roseburg? Now you can pull out the Great Umpqua Food Trail to find about 45 stops just a short detour off the highway that focus on local ingredients that were grown, raised, harvested or created in Southern Oregon’s “Great Umpqua” region — named for the watershed and the lush valleys through which the river and its tributaries flow.
Choose a section of the trail for a day (or week) of food adventure: wineries, breweries and farm-to-table restaurants, farmers’ markets, farm stands, u-pick farms, bakeries and cafes. The businesses along the Great Umpqua Food Trail share a commitment to promoting and sourcing products that are grown, raised or created in the Great Umpqua region.
The Great Umpqua Food Trail is open to visitors throughout the year and is designed to explore at your own pace — you are welcome to start and finish wherever you like. To ensure a positive experience, please check the hours of operation for each business online or by phone and note when advance reservations or appointments are required.
Before setting out along the Great Umpqua Food Trail, plan ahead by mapping your route to make it easy to navigate remote areas without cell service. Also check road conditions and fuel up, since gas stations can be harder to find on country roads.
The high season varies per business but is typically June – October. The seasonality of key products is listed below:
• Cherries are often available from June through August
• Blueberries and peaches are usually at their best July through August
• Pumpkin patches are often open September through October
The working farms along this trail provide some of the most unique and engaging experiences. We ask that you respect the invitation to enter each property and be cautious around farm animals and equipment. Children must be supervised at all times and you should be prepared to follow all site-specific rules. For your safety and comfort, be prepared with appropriate footwear, sun protection, and water.
We hope your experience along the Great Umpqua Food Trail doesn’t end when you leave the area. We encourage you to bring a taste of your journey back home to share with friends and family as a reminder of the bounty available in the Great Umpqua region.
