The Oregon Coast is sometimes thought of as having nothing but teeny tiny fishing villages.  While it is true that there are still a few small fishing villages along the coast, there also are many towns of several thousand or more people, and they offer most if not all of the services of large towns located anywhere!

Here is a list of grocery stores located along the Oregon Coast.

Safeway   is a standard size, full service grocery store

Price N' Pride   full size, a bit plain 

JC Thriftway   somewhat smaller, full service grocery stores  

C&K Markets  and  McKay’s Markets are both smaller    

Ray’s  vary in size; Brookings and Crescent City stores are full size    

Fred Meyer  a large department store with a full size grocery section

Walmart - Newport & Crescent City, good sized grocery sections; Coos Bay is giant Super Store

*independent stores are very small, individually owned grocery stores.
