about the market
Astoria Sunday Market combines fresh produce, local arts & crafts, food, music and more in a lively downtown street market atmosphere. 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 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 also includes a large food court with live music and an eclectic blend of food vendors located in the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot.
Astoria Sunday Market, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, 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. Astoria Sunday Market is dedicated to creating a vibrant educational marketplace for the community benefit.
Now celebrating its 20th season, Astoria Sunday Market was heralded as Oregon’s second largest market of its kind in 2007 and its reputation for excellence earned it the 2004 Downtown Achievement Award from the Oregon Downtown Development Association. The Market has grown to become a regular gathering place for locals, attraction for tourists, and incubator for small business development.
Astoria Sunday 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 is the focal of Astoria’s vibrant historic downtown during its 23 week season beginning Mother’s Day each May and ending the second Sunday in October. Thousands of visitors attend the Astoria Sunday Market each week and it is now the second largest market of its kind in Oregon.
