For a fine dining experience in Oregon, visit Red Hills Market. A key location in the heart of the Beaver State, Red Hills Market brings together the best farmers, chefs, and winery owners in the surrounding area under one roof, offering an unparalleled menu of exquisite delights for wonderful meals at any time of day. Doubling up as both a marketplace and restaurant, Red Hills Market is an incredible culinary destination for Oregon residents and visitors, opening doors of culinary exploration in one of the most picturesque parts of the Pacific Northwest.

The Red Hills Market Story

Red Hills Market opened its doors quite recently in 2011, but the history of this location goes back many years earlier. From an early age, Jody and Michelle Kropf shared the same dream and ambition: to create and open their own culinary destination in the heart of the Willamette Valley.

Inspired by the beauty of the area and its rich history, Jody and Michelle dreamed of making a place where people could come together at any time of day, enjoying exceptional food, wonderful wine, good company, and more. Red Hills Market was born in their minds many years ago and finally brought to life in 2011. Now, it exists as one of the valley's very best spots for people in need of a comfortable, friendly location in which to sit back, relax, and indulge their senses.

Breakfast at Red Hills Market

One of the best advantages of visiting Red Hills Market is that this isn't just a lunch or dinner location; you can dine at Red Hills Market at almost any time of day, with breakfast served through to 11am. Breakfast food options include all sorts of traditional treats like Steel Cut Oats and Breakfast Sandwiches, as well as more exotic offerings like House Smoked Salmon Toast, Hazelnut Pancakes, and delicious Breakfast Burritos.

Lunch and Dinner at Red Hills Market

The menu at Red Hills Market is the same for both lunch and dinner, with a great selection of appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, and pizzas available to suit all tastes and preferences. The light bites here include Wood-Fired Bread and Wood-Fired Veggies, with a Local and Imported Cheese Plate being another popular option and the Jojo's fries with bleu cheese sauce being exceptionally delicious. Soups are seasonal, with a great range of local ingredients and fresh produce used throughout the year.

Sandwiches can be purchased in both full-size or half-size, with gluten free options available too. Some popular sandwiches at Red Hills Market include the RHM Veggie, the Fried Chicken Sandwich, the RHM Reuben, and the Hill Farms Smoked Ham. Last but not least, the wood-fired pizzas are some of the best things you can hope to eat at Red Hills Market, so you definitely don't want to miss out, with some of the finest options being the Smoked Jerk Chicken Pizza, the American Coppa Pizza, and the Farmer's Market Veggie Pizza.
