Shop at the Dock!
Join Oregon Sea Grant for this free event to learn about Newport’s commercial fisheries and how to buy seafood directly from fishermen.
They will be visiting the commercial fishing docks and looking for fresh products to buy. Learn about what’s in season, how it’s caught, if it’s sustainable, and how to purchase high quality seafood. If you find a product you want to buy, Oregon Sea Grant staff will help guide you through the process.
Tours are on July 15th, 22nd, and 29th and August 5th, 12th, and 19th at 9:30am, 10:00am, 10:30am and 11:00am. Tours run about 90 minutes and are on a first come first serve basis. Please arrive early to find parking. Parking is available at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center Museum with purchase of admission. The museum opens at 11am. Shop at the Dock staff can assist you with admission purchase before 11am.
Please meet on the sidewalk by Port Dock 5 in Newport. Look for the Oregon Sea Grant Logo.
People interested in purchasing seafood should bring cash and a cooler with ice. Comfortable shoes with good traction is a must for everyone as you will be walking a long distance.
