Being in Portland, Maine- we're surrounded by new and exciting restaurants, food trucks, and pop up events constantly! Being on Fore Street specifically, we're lucky to have a handful of those local food businesses stop by regularly to pickup some ingredients for their menu.
Here’s some of our favorites:
We welcome Corey in the shop anytime, with great coffee comes great inspiration and ideas! Corey started experimenting with our Black Dutch Cocoa and Vanilla Extract Powder, and Vanilla Bean Paste recently in his Mocha and occasionally offers a Lavender Latte special with our French Lavender. All of his syrups are now made in house! Started as a push cart, the Buzz shop is adorable and now just a skip and a jump up Exchange St!
After closing in 2020, Bull Feeney’s has finally opened back up this August, with our Maple Salmon Rub, Maine Blueberry Pork Rub, Berbere, SKORDO Steak Seasoning, and Mediterranean Fish Seasoning in their kitchen. Bull Feeneys is an authentic Irish Pub & Restaurant right across the street from us on Fore St.
We love seeing the Higher Ground team stop by to pick up none other than our Vanilla Extract! Higher Grounds serves up a delicious collection of iced + hot coffee, alongside a collection of cannabis products right on Wharf St.
Chef Maria hustles across the way to see us on the regular, and often brings a trail of bacon aroma behind her (no complaints here!). You can find taste a combination of our Memphis Barbecue Rub and Chipotle Spice Rub making up their Pork-y Pine sandwich, our Madras Curry Powder on their Keep Calm and Curry On sandwich, and our Vanilla Extract in both their delightful brownies + cookies for dessert! Cheese Louise has another two locations in New Hampshire and food trucks for catering. Their Instagram is always looking delicious, linked here.
Maine Maple Creemee Co
Kelley, one of our Sales Associates in our Old Port shop, shared that Maine Maple Co has made a granola with our Ginger Sea Salt- genius! Owner/Founder Hannah highlights Maine Maple and other seasonal flavors in her Creemees on her mobile truck across Southern Maine. “Creemee” being a native Vermont term for a richer, creamier soft serve ice cream (arguably made with higher quality ingredients). You can typically catch her around the Eastern Promenade in Portland Thursday-Sunday, though it’s best to check Instagram for active updates.
