A Passion for Local

The North Coast Food Trail

A grant funded in part by the Oregon Lottery is giving foodies what they want – local bounty and innovative cuisine.

Taking A Bite of the Oregon Coast

Oregon’s northern coast boasts some of the best land around for growing food. The climate is temperate, the rain is plentiful, and the soil is world class. Fresh flavors and an adventurous culinary spirit abound.
The North Coast Food Trail was born from a simple desire to spread the Pacific Northwest foodie spirit along the coast, to showcase great local food and delight diners.

An Explosion of Food Innovation

In 2019, Oregon Lottery dollars helped fund a Business Oregon grant to further innovate the North Coast Food Trail. This funding helped expand access to food development training, which helps producers get new products into the marketplace.

Thanks to the program’s continued development, restaurants and suppliers have realized the Trail is more than just a visitor-facing program. It allows them to learn from each other and experience the stories of their peers along the Trail. It’s also providing producers a better link into local markets for their products.
