Yakima is the largest city in Yakima County with a population of about 92,000. That makes it the 9th largest city in Washington State. For a smaller city, Yakima has all that you would expect from a larger metropolitan area with its own orchestra, theaters, museum, art scene, outdoor events, and large scale annual festivals. The city provides you with exciting authentic cuisine, coffee shops and there is no shortage of shopping. Here you will not get the headaches that come with big city life such as travel and parking problems, congestion, pollution, and inflated cost of living expenses.
With more than forty commercial crops grown here, the Yakima Valley has the largest variety of fresh grown produce in the Pacific Northwest. The Yakima Valley is also home to over 120 wineries and five American Viticulture Areas (AVA’s). We proudly produce over half of Washington State’s wine grapes, and support a huge number of winemakers throughout the Pacific Northwest.
