Every Friday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., the Columbia-Pacific Farmers Market in downtown Long Beach at Veterans Field offers music, special presentations and a wholesome variety of produce and a variety of other local products ready to tantalize taste buds.

The market is fun for all ages, and has something new every week. For more information, call 360-642-4421 or e-mail: khaskin@longbeachwa.gov.

Saturday Market at the Port of Ilwaco is open every Saturday through the end of September from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Shop for fresh farm produce, regionally created arts and crafts, potted plants and cut flowers or enjoy chowder, juicy hamburgers and more while you munch on hot donuts, handmade sausage and yummy baked goods.

And you will find fine art photography, metal art, fashionable shopping bags, kitchen linens, children’s toys, a dazzling array of jewelry, embroidered shirts and much more.

As in Long Beach, the market offers a live soundtrack by talented local musicians, with a scenic backdrop as guests stroll along the harbor front and watch people, dogs and boats go by.
