Located in the heart of Oregon’s wine country, McMinnville is an inviting and friendly getaway destination featuring a stroll-worthy tree-lined historic downtown shopping district anchored by boutiques, cool coffeehouses, and kitschy antiquaries punctuated with wine tasting rooms, craft breweries and bars, a selection of award-winning restaurants and close proximity to the world’s best Pinot noir grown and fermented at vineyards just down the road. A short trip from Portland (clocking just a little over an hour’s drive), McMinnville is a fun getaway for both weekends and day-trippers alike.
One of downtown McMinnville’s newest additions is Mac Market, a renovated 10,000-square-foot historic warehouse, now refashioned into multi-use, community-driven, and collaborative place to eat, drink, and gather. Inspired by the area’s vibrant food and beverage community, Mac Market boasts a restaurant, café, bar & bottleshop, market store, and spaces for private and public events.
In the spirit of collaboration, Wellspent Market welcomes a selection of McMinnville’s food and beverage artisans, makers and shakers, including Mac Market [which also houses a tiny version of Wellspent Market], to pop up in the Wellspent Parking Lot on Saturday, July 16th from 2pm – 6pm.
