Lobster & Seafood

Bring Maine’s Delicacy Home - Complete with Memories of the Coast

Whether served overlooking the sea, aboard a ship, or atop crisp linen, a Maine lobster is worth the trip to Greater Portland. Always sumptuous and decadent, lobster fresh from the sea provides a taste of the state’s independent spirit as part of the bargain.

While arguably best consumed overlooking the sea, so much enjoyment can be derived from this celebrated crustacean that visitors will be anxious to prepare their own, either during their stay or delivered to their door after they get home.

Lobster lovers can take advantage of the city’s fish markets, or in nearby coastal towns find salt water tanks teeming with live lobsters ready for purchase. Lobster just loaded from the dock can be shipped, live, anywhere in the country by local markets, independent sellers and ship-direct businesses. Relying on local specialty shops for pies, bisques, and chowders is another excellent way to take the lobster experience home. Or, look to local food producers that prepare and package fresh lobster delicacies to order for an authentic Maine experience. Purchase lobster tails, lobster dinners complete with all the fixins’, seafood assortments that incorporate scallops, shrimp, and mussels, and some of the best lobster pies available anywhere.

Before heading back to camp or the summer home, be sure to stop at a local fish market - they’ll find them located right in town - with cases that overflow with the catch of the day.You‘ll enjoy selecting salmon, swordfish, haddock, tuna, picking out oysters and clams from various local farms, or choosing a live lobster from the saltwater tanks.
