Explore the best small businesses in Walla Walla County, as voted on by the community.

Located in south central Washington, Walla Walla County is historically referred to as “the cradle of the Pacific Northwest.” The land that would become Walla Walla County was home to the Walla Walla, Cayuse and Umatilla people, before becoming one of the earliest areas between the Rocky Mountains and the Cascade Mountains to be permanently settled by Europeans, to take advantage of the fertile soil.

Situated within the acclaimed Walla Walla Valley Wine Appellation, Walla Walla County is known for a bountiful agricultural industry that cultivates wheat, asparagus, wine grapes and the world famous Walla Walla Sweet Onions.

Lots of sun (and breathtaking sunsets) in the summer and mild winters contribute to an almost perfect climate. According to the most recent figures, the population is 60,567. Businesses old and new find themselves on this list of Walla Walla County, Washington’s best small businesses. Each have been nominated and voted for by the people who call this inland-northwest region home.
