Sauvie Island, OR
Sauvie Island is still agriculturally vibrant. The island continues to provide local farmers with the most fertile soil and best growing conditions. The vast farms are a visible reminder that Sauvie Island is still a land apart. In recent years the island has become known for its U-pick options and farm stands along Sauvie Island Road and Gillihan Road. From peaches to pumpkins, there are fruits and vegetables to be enjoyed all season long. The island has also become a recreational get-away for Portlanders offering some of the best hiking, beach access, hunting, and street cycling around.
Sauvie Island is the largest island along the Columbia River and lies ten miles west-northwest of downtown Portland, between the Columbia River to the east, the Multnomah Channel to the west, and the Willamette River to the south.
The island is predominantly farmland and wildlife refuge and has become a popular destination for a variety of people — those seeking the freshest and best produce (the island is home to a number of farms); birdwatchers looking for sandhill cranes, bald eagles, blue herons, or migrating geese; and those wanting to hike, bike, fish, hunt, or use the public beaches (Walton Beach, North Unit Beach, and the clothing-optional Collins Beach on the island's east coast).
Sauvie Island uses the 97056 & 97231 zipcodes.
