  Maine map

We have a LOT of local suppliers – everything from produce to body care products. Check out our new Maine suppliers map!

One of the things we love about working with so many great Maine businesses is developing mutually beneficial relationships over time and helping our member-owners and customers engage with the local food movement.

This map is a work in progress, so let us know what you think! We’ll be adding more suppliers and more information (like which of a company’s products we carry) in the coming weeks. As always, if there are local products you want to see on our shelves, let us know!
