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.
