HANTHORN CANNERY MARKET AT PIER 39
BEGINS MAY 2
ASTORIA, OR – Hanthorn Cannery Market at Pier 39 begins Sunday, May 2, from 10 am to 3 pm and features local photography by Astoria Photografpix, lively and colorful art featuring historic homes and buildings by Ronni Harris, sweet and salty roasted nuts by Nutz-R-Us, and driftwood art by Oceean Gevonden (Dutch for Uncovered Ocean). New vendors are welcome throughout the season to complement the other businesses in place at Pier 39. “We’re looking forward to bringing more activity to this historic place,” said Peter Marsh, director of the Hanthorn Cannery Foundation. “We want to encourage people to experience
Pier 39 and adding vendors brings another element for visitors to
explore.” The market operates every Sunday through September.
The Hanthorn Cannery Market is a new venture of Hanthorn Cannery Foundation to raise money and awareness about its efforts to preserve the history of the fishing and canning industry on the lower Columbia River.
Among the activities at Pier 39 is the Hanthorn Cannery Museum where visitors can learn about the history of the former Bumble Bee cannery while locals enjoy a stroll down memory lane – many of whom either worked or had family who worked at the cannery. The Museum also sells an assortment of souvenir items–from pins to cups – with proceeds benefiting the Hanthorn Cannery Foundation. Businesses at Pier 39 provide an opportunity to soak in the view and busy water activity while eating at Rogue’s Pier 39 Public House or at The Coffee Girl. Fresh crab is available at Hanthorn Crab Company. Also at Pier 39 is Four Winds Canvas Works who do custom canvas projects from boat sail covers, awnings and seat cushions to bags for personal needs. Astoria Scuba is a
one stop shop for diving, training, kayaking, and stand-up paddle
boarding. Need more than a day to take it all in? Plan an extended
