One of the most fun aspects of visiting any small town is getting to know that community through its locally owned shops and stores. Sandy is no different, with a fun selection of spots to visit to take home some souvenirs commemorating your visit, and some gifts for those who didn't join you in your journeys.
Timberline Meat is an incredible little shop at the western entrance of downtown Sandy that harkens back to the days of the neighborhood butcher shop. It's a must visit if you have a grill master in the family or a foodie who appreciates a high quality cut of meat. From beef and pork to chicken and sausage, they have everything you'd expect, as well as seasonings, marinades and even sides.
The Sandy Historical Society & Museum doesn't just chronical the history of the area, they also have a well appointed gift shop filled with treasures. From hand crafted jewelry from local artisans to gifts honoring the heritage of Sandy, the shop is the ideal place to find perfect souvenirs for history-loving friends back home.
Farmers markets are one of the best ways to really learn the identity of a community you're visiting, and this is certainly true with Sandy's Mount Hood Farmers Market. Taking place every Friday afternoon from 3-7pm starting in May and running through October, the market features foods grown locally as well as art and gifts crafted by local makers. Located at the entrance to Sandy's downtown district, it's a nice prelude to an afternoon of shopping and dining in Sandy.
Otto's Ski Shop has been the go-to spot for winter visitors to gear up for some Nordic skiing or snowshoeing adventures on Mt. Hood for nearly 40 years. They have all the equipment necessary plus apparel. They also offer rentals, so if you're just trying for the first time, you don't need to commit to something before falling in love with your newest hobby.
K's Clothing Boutique specializes in gently used women's fashions as well as new handcrafted jewelry styles. Located near the western entrance to town off of US-26, their offerings are always changing, so it's best to visit often to ensure you find the best outfits to add to your mountain wardrobe.
