The Astoria Sunday Market is so spread out you might need a massage after shopping. This woman’s therapeutic hands can fix you up.

The final Astoria Sunday Market of the year takes place Sunday, wrapping up another season of people under canopies serving art, crafts, food, flowers, music, even massages.

I spent a few summer hours sketching vendors at work. Many have been offering their talents for years, and there are always a handful of newcomers. A walk through the Market is a great way to spend a Sunday.

Thomas’ work can be seen at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria.
