(Manzanita, Oregon) – In some ways, you could invoke Hemmingway and call it a movable feast. Because it really is – Oregon coast-style. The North Coast Food Trail encompasses more than 100 miles of coastal yumminess in a kind of self-guided tour of all things foodie. (All photos Oregon Coast Beach Connection unless otherwise noted)

And it's added a few new things this year.

Nan Devlin, executive director of Visit Tillamook Coast said the North Coast Food Trail is on the move, as in it has expanded its territory slightly. Now part of the ride are a couple of spots in Clatskanie, just east of Astoria. The whole trail starts at the southern edges of the Tillamook County line at Neskowin and runs up through Cannon Beach, Seaside, Astoria and now Clatskanie.

You’ll find them in Neskowin, Pacific City, Netarts, Tillamook, Bay City, Rockaway Beach, Garibaldi, Nehalem and Manzanita in Tillamook County. Cannon Beach was part of the original tour when it started in 2018, and slowly Seaside and Astoria were added.

Fresh seafood right off boats is sometimes part of the deal at the North Coast Food Trail

Bigger ways to promote the now-Oregon coast tradition popped up this spring, Devlin said.

“We have been awarded a $15,000 grant from Travel Oregon's Wine Country License Plate fund to do a series of videos: 'cooking with the chefs of the North Coast Food Trail,' “ she told Oregon Coast Beach Connection. “We'll get started on that in June.”

A huge array of food-oriented firms are featured. You’ll find farms, farmers’ markets, breweries, wineries, distilleries, restaurants, butchers, guided tours and experiences, lodgings and retail stores. Participants are denoted on the North Coast Food Trail website, and maps are handed at participating businesses throughout the region. There is also physical signage.

There's now a new brochure you can download and take with you.

More have joined the family, Devlin said.

“We added Clatskanie Farmers Market and Barefoot Farm and Flowers in Clatskanie; Gathered Bakery and Market in Astoria; West Fish Company in Pacific City; Crab Rock Pizza in Garibaldi; and Neskowin Trading Co. in Neskowin,” she said.

Neskowin Trading Co. peddles in the gourmet trade, with a wide variety of homemade eats. They even cook their own grub, with lunch and breakfast on a daily basis, but dinner on Wednesdays through Saturdays. There's also fab barbecue. 503-392-3035

The Clatskanie Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through September. It happens in Cope's Park. (503) 412-8678

Crab Rock Pizza in Garibaldi has a legendary Napoletana-style pizza thing going, with an oven that can fire those babies up in under three minutes. Much of the ingredients are locally-made and their dough takes at least a couple of days to ferment. There's a lot of attention to detail there. (971) 265-1122.

Among the famed standbys are MacGregor’s, a Whiskey Bar in Manzanita and Cannon Beach, offering up their wonders. They have one of the largest selection of whiskeys on the coast — including over 200 brown liquors and a top shelf that will make you grin. 503-368-2447. Website here.
