From organic produce to handcrafted goods, local farmer's markets are the heart of many Oregon coastal towns.

Whether you come to shop for fresh, local foods or just to socialize with friends and neighbors, outdoor markets have become a popular summer staple for locals and visitors alike. From Brookings, Oregon to Washington's Long Beach Peninsula, selections may vary, but they all have one important thing in common: community. Outdoor markets provide a public space to connect with the farmers and artisans who bring their goods straight from the fields and workshops and into your shopping bag. After all, there is no better time than summer to eat homegrown food and see what local artisans have in store.

Page forward to find our handpicked selection of open-air markets to add to your travels.
