Labor Day Weekend in Astoria and few were laboring – maybe everybody was too tired from fighting the rain.
Driving rain and wind closed the Astoria Sunday Market for the first time since 2000. Director Cyndi Mudge said these were the worst conditions she had ever seen. The Market usually has between 150 and 160 vendors, but this Sunday only 40 muscled through the storm. Many vendors were simply not able to arrive.
