Eat Local. Eat Healthy. Eat Maine.
Nourish yourself and support Maine's vital food economy
It brings us great pride to see the strong sense of community in Maine during these trying times as we continue to support not only our colleagues and loved ones but the small businesses that help define our beautiful state. Restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, specialty markets, farmers, fishermen, and small food producers are adapting on the fly to stay in business while keeping their employees and customers safe. Use this list, which we will update as needed, to help them and eat really well, too. Scroll down to see separate sections for restaurants, farms, bakeries, and markets, fish and seafood, and beer, wine, and spirits. Latest update: Friday, March 27, 4:30 p.m.
