Shopping for your dad can be both fun and frustrating. Every dad is unique, making it hard to find the perfect something that says you care and that you know he will appreciate. From Oregon craft beer to personal care products, Market of Choice offers an array of items that make wonderful gifts for the father or father-figure in your life.
Add a kick to your gift
If he likes to put hot sauce on everything, he might appreciate a new kind of sauce or even a hot honey.
Hoss Soss is ideal for the dad who loves spice, but not the intensity. This hot sauce is made in Salem, Oregon, and has a mild heat that doesn’t overpower foods.
Mike’s Hot Honey is the perfect gift for the dad who likes to experiment. This chili pepper-infused honey adds a sweet kick to pizza, cheese, wings and more.
Secret Aardvark Trading Co. Sauces are full of flavor and heat. With interesting varieties, like Drunken Garlic Black Bean and Drunken Jerk Jamaican, these Portland-made sauces are as unique as your dad.

Give the gift of a local beverage
Stop by your Market Beer & Wine Department and pick-out a thoughtful beverage. The selection at each of our stores varies, but a locally made beer makes a great gift, such as Baerlic Brewing, Rogue, Buoy and more! Or, give him a growler of on-tap beer, available at our Bend, Belmont and Cedar Mill locations. Is your dad more of a wine enthusiast? We have an array of local wine choices at each of our stores, too. Here are just a few of our favorites.
