about the market
Astoria Sunday Market, at the heart of Astoria's Downtown, combines fresh produce, local arts & crafts, food, music and more in a lively downtown street market atmosphere. The market features up to 200 vendors each week offering locally-made products that have been hand-crafted, grown, created or gathered by the farmers, craftspeople and artisans featured each week. In addition, the Market has a lively food court with regional entertainment making this the gathering place each Sunday for locals and visitors to the region. The music is as fresh as the produce with musicians performing original songs.
Astoria Sunday Market began in 2000 and now covers four city blocks in the heart of historic Downtown Astoria on 12th Street between Marine Drive (Highway 30) and Exchange Street. The market has a 23-week season beginning Mother’s Day each May and ending the second Sunday in October. Many downtown stores and shops in Astoria are also open on Sunday to provide you with even more shopping possibilities. There is plenty of downtown parking and the nearby waterfront River Walk and the recently refurbished Astoria Trolley allow you to extend your stroll to other parts of Astoria.
Astoria Sunday Market was formed to revitalize Historic downtown Astoria and to improve the economic viability and vitality of farmers, artists, artisans and other small business operators in the Pacific Northwest. The market is dedicated to creating a vibrant educational marketplace for the community benefit. It has grown to become a regular gathering place for locals, attraction for tourists, and incubator for small business development.
After its 20th season, Astoria Sunday Market officially merged with the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association, a Performing Oregon Main Street Organization, so to continue strengthening its mission of revitalizing Downtown Astoria. This collaboration provides the unique opportunity for the Sunday Market to seamlessly collaborate with downtown efforts, and to successfully grow small businesses.
