(Manzanita, Oregon) – It just feels like a long summer in Oregon and Washington, with all the above average heat. But in reality, summer got off to a late start, not really starting until July – and barely. Which means that on the Oregon Coast, its extensive collection of farmers’ markets is always cooking – like a bustling, bouncy, buzzing activity.

Along the North Oregon Coast, the North Coast Food Trail enters its new season of foodie fun as farmers markets begin to get new treats. Yet these independent vendors of freshness are also entering their final weeks, with September typically closing outdoor markets. However, there are still a few days to a few weeks left to catch the yummy stuff.
According to Explore Tillamook Coast:

“Some harvests started more slowly thanks to the rains in June. But since then, the warm sun has encouraged a bountiful harvest.
Explore Tillamook Coast has provided a short list of new harvest items:
The blueberries have flowed in and they are often foraged.
Finally, tomatoes are in the game, Explore Tillamook Coast said, along with cantaloupes, yellow onions and purple artichokes.
Perfect for salads, pickling or canning (or imitating Dwight Schrute), beets are all the rage. Look for green beans, cauliflower, broccoli and corn. Want a little spice with your visit to the Oregon Coast? Chilis are featured now. In the realm of more comfort foods, hip and fresh seasonal potatoes, yams and pumpkins should be on your list.
“And don’t forget all the other gourmet goodies available: jams, coffee, bakery, sweets, tea, meat and fish,” the agency said.
The North Coast Food Trail covers approximately 85 miles with approximately 60 stops to feed your throat and expand your palate. You can find the full list of this delightful means of exploration here.
