Sad news - 12th St Market burns down

This is a bummer for those who spend time in Seaside. Friendly little market, family owned, and right next to the 12th St Bridge.

Yeah I was really surprised to hear about that this morning. I wonder if it's connected to the recent fires in Astoria.

I was passing through Seaside on Thursday evening and I stopped by to see the burned down market. Sadly, it's a total loss. Only the east wall is standing, and it looks like they're clearing out rubble and charred remains. I don't know what they will build there but I doubt they put up another corner market on that prime riverfront real estate. I didn't get pictures because it was dark out and my iPhone doesn't have a flash.

Too bad about the fire. It was a good place to get out of the rain and grab bait and or a snack. Did'nt the property next door to the east burn down years ago? The Copeland Lumber Comapny.

It looks like they have finally cleared out all the rubble and debris from the old market. Sad that this happened, it was such a friendly little market and a great location. You can't tell from the picture but directly to the right there's a house that's probably loving it though. They went from having a backyard with a view of a big ugly cinderblock wall, to a 270 panaramic view of the entire estuary.

Fishtales--I didn't know that there was a lumber yard there. Is that where the Prom Bike Shop now sits?

Not sure but I think so. It was on the corner at the 4way intersection. I remember when the Safeway was across the street. Years ago we got some beer there and dropped them from the bridge to friends boating. 

Now that I think about it, Copeland’s Lumber may not have burnt to the grown, but there definitely was a fire that caused gobs of damage years ago.
