Specialty Foods

Local Delicacies are Utterly Giftable & Wicked Good

In a city known for its culinary delights, it’s no surprise that specialty food opportunities number in the hundreds. Local businesses and independent producers of Maine-made products using native ingredients from earth and sea- creating iconic gourmet confections are easily found while exploring the city and neighboring towns. Besides being of the finest quality, local delicacies are "wicked good” to boot.

Shoppers can expect local shops to carry a selection of items with Maine’s iconic fruit, the wild blueberry, which figures prominently in area specialty foods. Find it in syrups, jams and jellies, chocolates, even integrated into locally-made spirits and brews. Visitors can enjoy a local favorite, the Whoopie Pie, and if they are daring enough, can veer from tradition with a gourmet chocolate chip, bourbon, or red velvet Whoopie. Chocolatiers are plentiful in the Greater Portland area where craveable confections take the shape of L.L. Bean boots, caramel is combined with Maine sea salt, and wild blueberries are dunked in rich chocolate.

Ready-to-enjoy bisques and chowders using lobster and seafood harvested from the cold waters of the Atlantic allow visitors to bring some of the tastes of Maine home – also look to local fish markets or specialty shops for smoked varieties. Local farms, too, offer herbs and local meats and poultry, cider, mushrooms, honey, and artisanal cheeses. Frequenting farmer’s markets in Monument Square on Congress Street, or elsewhere during colder months, is great way to find these small-scale sellers. Or, enjoy visiting the home base of nationally-known specialty food brands that make Maine their home.
