These guys were playing outside the Liberty Theater. Not only a great restored landmark for the city, but a hot spot on Sunday for Astoria‘s Market.
We also sampled some really good stuff. On the advice of Market regulars and a tip from our friends at Columbia River Coffee Roasters, we had the salmon crepes by Crepe Neptune from Cannon Beach. Also a four-pack cookie variety by Packer Family Orchards & Bakery from Hood River.
The market’s website is astoriasundaymarket.com.
A century ago, the shores of the lower Columbia River were lined with canneries. With the closure of the Bumble Bee facility, only a few remain. The Skipanon brand seafood facility in Warrenton, Oregon still packs them fresh in small batches. Their products are available at the cannery, by mail, and at farmers markets in Astoria and Beaverton.
