Cannon Beach's Culinary Attractions
Published: 12/13/2010 Updated: 08/13/2019
With its bounty from the sea, local organic farms, regional artisan cheeses and one of the world's best wine growing regions just an hour away, Cannon Beach is home to a wide variety of culinary attractions.
The Cannon Beach Farmer's Market between mid-June and September offers delectible choices for a gourmet meal or perfect picnic. Each Tuesday, the market offers fresh fruits and vegetables, artisan cheeses, quality meats and seafoods, and fresh herbs. The market is located in the public parking lot on Gower Street in Midtown Cannon Beach. Many restaurants take advantage of the regional specialties available to create changing menus based on the top quality seasonal products available at the peak of freshness. Special wine dinners with visiting winemakers are offered by some restaurants throughout the year. In March, wine dinners, a wine walk and wine tastings are part of Savor Cannon Beach wine and culinary festival. At EVOO Cannon Beach Cooking School, the celebration of all things culinary is a year-round attraction. Classes, special dinners and events take advantage of seasonal and regional ingredients, often paired with Northwest wines. Two wine shops and extensive wine selections at local grocery stores offer oenophiles a world of wine choices and regular wine tastings.
