Astoria Sunday Market was founded in 2000 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to revitalizing historic downtown Astoria and supporting artists, farmers and other small producers and businesses. Another important piece of its mission is to create a vibrant community gathering place. Astoria Sunday Market has donated nearly $170,000 to a variety of downtown projects and events over the years including Liberty Theater Restoration, the Chinese Park, construction of the public restrooms located on 12th and Exchange Streets, downtown beautification projects and Astoria Downtown Historic District Association.
