The Pursuit Of Sugar: A Tour Of Bakeries In Canby

Canby is a charming small town in the heart of the Willamette Valley with a bakery scene that's anything but small. While Canby is known for its farms and nurseries, it may come as an unexpected delight to some that it’s also home to a number of fantastic bakeries. (We’re guessing the town’s doughnut-to-resident ratio must be off the charts!)

From classic American comfort to south-of-the-border delights to European-style chocolates, your taste buds are in for a treat. The best part is, you can visit most of these locations on foot downtown. Pack your sense of adventure (and an empty stomach!) and get ready to embark on a delicious bakery tour. Pro tip: Don't forget to check out our list of things to do in Canby while you're in the area. With a lovely selection of wineries, shopping and opportunities for outdoor recreation, you won't be disappointed!
