Featuring local foods is a specialty for many of Bar Harbor restaurants. Havana, Red Sky, Mache, Asticou Inn all feature local foods on their menu.  Local food is a great option: fresh taste, high nutrition, low carbon footprint.   All good for the planet and you.

If you are camping out or staying where you can cook your own meals you can find great local foods at farmers markets, local food markets such as the Blue Hill Coop, Alternative Market in Bar Harbor,  John Edwards Market in Ellsworth, A&B Naturals in Bar Harbor, Sawyers Market in Southwest Harbor and  Pine Tree Market in Northeast Harbor.    Local food is affordable and fresh.   Seek food in season for the best bargains. And don’t forget the many fresh seafood markets!

Maine schools have joined together with local farmers to supply schools with local foods.   Mount Desert Elementary, MDI High School, Lamoine Consolidated School, Deer Isle Stonington High School,  and the College of the Atlantic all get food from nearby growers.

Take home some local foods like jams and jellies to help you remember your vacation all winter long.
