The chamber has been instrumental to my business over the course of the last couple of years. As a busy small-business owner it takes me a while to “get to things”. My membership in the McMinnville Chamber has proven to be one thing I wish I’d “gotten to” more quickly. They’re close by with resources I wasn’t expecting to find. Nathan & the team have had the answers I have needed–that is to say, they know a lot and they know who knows everything else.
Not only has the chamber & my membership been important to my business, driving traffic our way and giving us a forum to learn and disseminate information, it’s also become really important to me personally, as I’ve begun to develop friendships that are important to me.

McMinnville, Oregon is a tremendous place to live, work, and play. The McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to represent hundreds of businesses that contribute to our thriving economy.
McMinnville, situated in the heart of the Yamhill Valley, represents the best of Oregon. If you’re visiting us, welcome! No doubt you’ll fall for our spirited wines, exceptional dining, and lush setting. There’s plenty of recreation and after all that play, relax with a restful night’s sleep.
Our agricultural roots still grow strong today. You can find the freshest, quality produce and locally-grown products at the Farmer’s Market, local stores, and restaurants. Verdant vineyards, golden wheat fields, and other crops envelop our charming town and surrounding areas.
If you want to make your stay here permanent, you’re not alone. The population more than doubled in the last two decades, currently at 33,930 – and still flourishes. McMinnville maintains its small-town friendliness and appeal with all the convenience and amenities of the city.
Located 50 miles from Pacific Ocean beaches, 35 miles from the metropolis of Portland, and 25 miles from the state capitol, Salem, McMinnville is convenient to wherever you need to go. And the Cascade Mountains are a scenic 2-3 hour drive – making a weekend getaway attainable.
McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce welcomed many new members in the past year. The strength of our membership (average 400-500 members) is due to the cohesive, supportive group of business leaders who enrich the economic health of the area.
