Astoria Sunday Market, Oregon’s second largest farmers market, features “fresh and locally grown” food, artisan crafts and art, plus live music every week from mid-May to mid-October. From 10 am – 3 pm every Sunday, you can wander among the almost 200 vendors offering products that have been grown, gathered, or created by local farmers, artists, and artisans. The Sunday Market reviews all these products to assure their quality and authenticity. You’ll find this Growers and Makers Market just a five minute stroll through the historic district from Clementine’s Bed and Breakfast.
