Oceanside, CA — In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our community, MainStreet Oceanside is adhering to the Stay at Home Order issued on March 19 by Governor Newsom. Our office is closed, but we are monitoring phone and email messages and will continue to provide support and information to Downtown Oceanside.
The Oceanside Morning Farmers Market and Oceanside Sunset Market will remain closed until further notice.
In the meantime, please continue to support your Downtown Oceanside businesses. Ways you can safely support are ordering delivery from downtown restaurants and coffee shops, ordering online from local shops, purchasing gift cards for future use and making donations to local museums and theaters, including donations in lieu of ticket refunds.
Food & Drink To Go – Until further notice, under the Order of the Health Officer and Emergency Regulations, restaurants in Downtown Oceanside and all of San Diego County are ordered to close their dine-in areas but can continue to offer takeout, delivery and drive-through services.
We have compiled a list of Downtown Oceanside food and drink establishments offering takeout and/or delivery at oceansidetogo.com. If you would like to be included in the Oceanside To-Go online guide, please send your information to Kristin at [email protected].
Restaurants with excess food can partner with the North County Food Bank and San Diego Food Bank to avoid food waste. To arrange a donation pick-up or drop off, contact Kimberly Castillo at [email protected] or call her at (858) 863-5133.
