There are farmer's markets in all the nearby cities, but Corvallis is home to the largest of them. It spans two or three (wasn't really counting) blocks of 1st Street downtown.
Downtown Corvallis (30 minutes away, and pictured above) looks very similar to downtown Albany (15 minutes away). A tree-lined street, where old brick buildings sport antique hanging signs or strategically placed sandwich boards out front. Another commonality between Albany and Corvallis is the plethora of quaint furniture stores and bike shops. Not to mention, the typical overcast sky.
