Chimacum Corner Farmstand supports local farms and small businesses in our area -- in fact, we sell our eggs and sourdough when available on their shelves! Their selection of organic, nourishing goods are finely crafted and offer the best local options -- whether you are buying ingredients for a meal or want to pop in for a snack to-go, this is the place to find such items. Although the store appears small from the road, they should have everything that you need & more.

This cidery is the first stop we ever made in Chimacum -- it is what attracted us here in the first place! We love the owners, staff and cider selections offered at Finnriver. This cidery plays a huge role in our community and supports so many local businesses and artists. This is the hub of the community during every season. There is usually wood-fired pizza and crepes offered on the weekends (however, this changes seasonally so please check out the Finnriver website to see what food is available and when). Most weekends, Finnriver has live music too! This is a great place to go for all ages and any group size -- family friendly as well.

Port Townsend Vineyards is a wonderful place to stop if you are looking for a relaxing, quaint and peaceful experience -- conveniently located with some of the most friendly staff we know. PT Vineyards has been a huge support for our farm -- Natalie drops off her sourdough here for her subscription members once a week. We enjoy their artisan wines, whether we taste in house or take a bottle for home.
