Shop Small in Yamhill – Carlton Oregon

Shopping Small in Carlton Oregon adds up to Big Things.

Small businesses are at the core of every thriving neighborhood. That’s why, in the midst of the recession in 2010, American Express created Small Business Saturday® on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses. Crippled by the pandemic crippled we’re counting on all of us to rebuild, promote, and sustain our resilient communities.

The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild asked our innkeepers to share what’s not to miss in their communities: restaurants, shops, parks, and we’d present a series of blog posts, extending a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.

Guests at Yamhill Vineyards Bed and Breakfast are encouraged to visit downtown Carlton, a little over 3 miles from the inn. Let the shopping begin at one of the nearly two dozen tasting rooms in Carlton. Given the city population of around 2000 people, Carlton has the highest tasting room per capita community in the United States. Now that’s something to boast about considering there are over 500 wineries in the Willamette Valley
