Many visitors to our oceanfront Oregon Coast vacation rentals want to know -
Where is the best Oregon Coast Seafood?
Lots of people can recommend the best seafood restaurants on the Oregon Coast, and we'll write about that in another Manzanita Beach Life blog post.
Today we're focusing on places to buy the best, freshest seafood Oregon Coast style!
Follow along, and we'll let you in on our Insiders Tips for places to buy the best Oregon Coast seafood.
Northwest Wild Products. If you're looking for Astoria seafood markets, stop by Northwest Wild Products for some fresh Oregon seafood. Located on the Astoria Oregon docks at the Port of Astoria West Mooring Basin, one block south of the Cannery Pier Hotel.
Josephsons Smokehouse. Okay, including Josephsons Smokehouse in a post about fresh Oregon Coast seafood is admittedly cheating, but we couldn't resist! Josephsons has been a family favorite since it's inception, and carries on the local Astoria seafood Scandinavian tradition with incredible smoked fresh Oregon seafood. Stop by - you won't regret it!
Manzanita Beach Life Insiders Tip: If you're looking to enjoy Astoria seafood, mark you calendars for the annual Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival in April. You'll love the great coastal cuisine, arts and crafts, wine tasting and lots more.
Bell Bouy Seaside. A family owned northern Oregon Coast institution, Bell Bouy is both a Seaside seafood market and Seaside restaurant serving a limited menu. I remember stopping by for a family treat of crab cocktails when I was young. The Bell Bouy menu has expanded to include such favorites at fish and chips, prawns and chowder.
But back to the fresh Bell Bouy seafood. It's reliably fresh and the selection is good. Not only that, if you're now on the coast they now have a delivery option. How lucky is that?
Cannon Beach Seafood
Ecola Seafood. Ecola Seafood has been a part of the Cannon Beach community since 1933. Their seafood cases are stocked from their two fishing vessels that fun along the Oregon and Washington coastlines.
Ecola Seafood prides itself on "wild" caught Pacific seafood (line caught), and specializes in the following:
Fresh Oregon Troll Caught King Chinook Salmon Fresh Halibut Fresh Dungeness Crab Meat and Whole Cooked Crab Fresh Oregon Shrimp Meat Willapa Bay Oysters
Steamer Clams Breaded Razor Clams
Ecola Seafood is also a Cannon Beach restaurant and also has prepared food which can be eaten at their shop.
Manzanita Beach Life note: Ecola Seafood unfortunately had an electrical fire at their shop. Happily, they're scheduled to be reopening early winter 2018.
Those looking for seafood in Manzanita Oregon have two options.

Kelly's Brighton Marina is located just south of Wheeler. Rent a boat and equipment and harvest your seafood yourself. The wonderful Kelly's staff will even shell and cook your catch.
Or take advantage of the extremely fresh seafood sold at Kelly's Brighton Marina, harvested by them. You can't go wrong with either option. Kelly's Brighton Marina is a fan favorite.
