(Astoria, Oregon) – Always a sign of spring every year on the Oregon North Coast, this time it’s also a sign of things getting back to normal. The 22nd season of the Astoria Sunday Market reopens on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8. Set amidst this unique mix of rustic and slightly rusty grandeur of old Astoria architecture, the Astoria Sunday Market is a burst of bright color in a town already full of character.

More than 150 vendors are part of this house favourite, marking the return of fresh flower bouquets, tasty hot corn and locally grown produce. In that unmistakable salt air of the Oregon Coast, handmade and artisan products come straight from the workshops of independent businesses in the region, primarily on the North Coast and South Coast of Washington. This is your chance to reconnect with your favorite independent vendors in this bustling open-air market, or make friends with new ones.

Organizers say they are emerging from the pandemic with a sense of excitement with this 22nd season, celebrating a return to weekly music at its bustling food court every Sunday. Portland’s Lorna Baxter Trio will kick things off with their soulful opening day tunes.

“Grab a burger, gyro or burrito and enjoy the show,” said market manager Shelby Meyers.

Culinary finds include fudge, Hawaiian-style dips, artisan sauces, homemade salsa, European-style salami, gourmet pizza and fish ‘n chips – all handmade. Other vendors include: High Street Tonics serves plant-based drinks; Buddha Kat Winery is a local Clackamas County winery with a tasting room in Seaside; Holey Rollers Mini Donuts is a small candy supplier; Pet Wants Scapoose is a fresh, all-natural pet food company; T-Bee-S Honey provides raw honey; Ellie’s Jellies & More makes sweet jams and jellies; Willapa River Goods is a bakery; and The Hummus Stop creates innovative Mediterranean cuisine on site.

The 2022 Astoria Sunday Market offers what it calls “the best access to fresh food yet. After a successful first year of accepting SNAP and EBT, we are now distributing Double-Up Food Bucks (DUFB).

With this innovative program, SNAP users will receive an additional $1 for every SNAP dollar spent – up to $20. Get your SNAP and DUFB and learn more about these food access programs at the ASM information booth near the corner of 12th and Duane.

The market is organized by the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association.

“I and the Downtown Association are excited to dive into our second season running the Sunday Market,” Shelby said. “The quality of produce coming through the market is amazing, and we have a fantastic mix of long-time vendors and new agricultural, food and craft products this year. All market participants are excited to be back in a thriving market, and we look forward to inviting visitors and members of the community to join us for a wonderful season.

During this time, you can also take time to revel in the atmosphere and distinctive sights that the northern Oregon coastal city has to offer. The streetcar is back in action around Astoria and don’t miss major historic sites like the waterfront or the Fort Astoria replica.

The 2022 season runs until October 9 and is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday. Visit www.astoriasundaymarket.com for updates. MORE PHOTOS BELOW
