Every Sunday over 100 vendors from the greater Astoria area line 12th Street in historic downtown Astoria for the Astoria Sunday Market.
“Food is such a vibrant part of a community,” said Shelby Meyers, market and promotions manager. “It just ties the community together. The Market creates a greater understanding of where our food comes from and its connection with the farmers and our customers. It changes every week that you come. I think the market is exciting because it’s based on our local economy and improvement of day-to-day life in our community as well.”
While there’s plenty of farmer vendors, it’s a really good mix of other producers.
“It’s a craft heavy market and a good stable foundation of farmers and food producers, as well as a couple hot food vendors,” Meyers said.
“The biggest thing I hear about the Market is the community there,” said Meyers. “We’re a big community with a big diversity of goods. We care about each other and the products we’re selling.”
The Astoria Sunday Market operates between Mother’s Day and the second week in October.
