Health conscious Eugene also has quite a good selection for dining and an excellent in-store selection of vegetarian, vegan, raw and organic food. Eugene has many extremely-well-stocked health food and natural food stores, as well as Farmer’s Markets and local Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs).
Besides well-known national retail stores, like Nordstroms, Nike, Gap, TJ Maxx, Trader Joe’s, and Costco, Eugene also has a diverse array of specialty stores providing goods from all over the world. Buying local is also important to Eugene residents, as the 45 year old Eugene Saturday Market reveals. This Saturday Market is the oldest weekly open-air crafts market in the US. Items sold at the Eugene Saturday Market must be handcrafted by the seller, or the seller’s immediate family.
