Farmer's Markets Bloom On Oregon Coast - A Guide by Town

Published 06/07/2011

(Oregon Coast) – You'll now find them all over the Oregon coast, sprouting up in towns like Astoria, Cannon Beach, Manzanita, Tillamook, Lincoln City, Newport, Waldport, Yachats and Florence. There's just something about hunting and gathering in the great coastal outdoors – in that dreamy ocean air. (above: Newport Farmer's Market - courtesy photo).

With their close proximity to rural coast range farms, you have quite the pickin's to choose from as well.

These markets depend on the nicer weather more than inland, however, so they tend to stick to the late spring and early fall. But what many still don’t know well is that is that September and early October provide the best weather of the year, allowing shoppers to bask in seriously warm, even sometimes balmy coastal temps.

In Manzanita, the Friday night Farmer’s Market there has made quite the splash in the tiny town. It’s become a favorite of locals and visitors alike.

“The Farmers Market has grown mightily over these last few years since its inception,” said Brian Hines, owner of Manzanita’s San Dune Motel. “It runs from about the third week in June through mid-September on Friday nights. The town is always jam packed; even the side streets are full of cars. We promote it with guests primarily because apart from fresh veggies you can get great burgers, crepes, smoked salmon chowder, pies, etc. etc.,  plus live music.”
Hines said the economic impact may not be real obvious initially, but it’s there.

“I don't think it adds any more to what we have in the lodging business, with it being the high season anyway,” he said. “But the retail outlets stay open later the nights of the market. I can't say that it brings tourists in just for the event, but it certainly adds to the general feeling of well being and relaxation with the people that are in town. So yes it has a positive economic impact.”


At the Waldport Wednesday Market, this one is a bit different – not technically a display of locally grown produce. It’s a broader market situation, a bit like Portland’s famed Saturday Market.

The emphasis, however, is still local, as organizer Lou Piette points out there are only two large employers in Waldport: the local supermarket and the school district.

“I’m doing what I can to help the local economy,” Piette said.

His own outdoor market endeavor has met with considerable success in these three years. The first year he started with just a handful of vendors, and by the end of the season he had a little over 20. Last year, he started with around 25 and soon had over 60.

Cannon Beach
