We know that travel plans this summer may still be a bit uncertain (see the article below for more information on visiting the state), but if you’re not able to be here, let us help you bring Maine to your table! Many local restaurants and food purveyors have stretched their creativity and their services to now offer overnight shipping of their best products, dishes and delights! Whether you are looking for all the right ingredients to create your own Maine masterpiece or wanting something fully prepared, check out the variety of options at your fingertips!
Lobster and Seafood:
There is no doubt that lobster is a Maine Beaches signature and we have many options for you to have them delivered—from live and ready to cook to delectable dishes featuring this mouthwatering delight—right to your door!
If you are looking to prep your own, we have a number of local lobster pounds that are happy to deliver your live lobsters overnight. These include Taylor Lobster Company , Port Lobster, the Wells Beach Lobster Pound, and the Southern Maine Lobster Company . And if you’ve never cooked your own lobster, let the folks at the University of Maine guide you through the process step by step!
In addition to live whole lobsters, other prepared dishes available include lobster pot pies (filled with chunks of tender meat and a flavorful, creamy sauce) from the Kennebunk Inn , and lobster roll kits from the Clam Shack , which incidentally was named one of America’s Best Lobster Rolls by Food and Wine Magazine . And if a bowl of New England clam chowder is something you’re craving, try a chowder kit from Alisson’s or Mike’s Clam Shack .
For a full, honest-to-goodness Maine Beaches meal from soup to nuts, consider Bayley’s Lobster Pound, where you can start your order with shrimp cocktail (featuring their homemade cocktail sauce), move on to their rich and flavorful lobster bisque, indulge in some fresh haddock or salmon and cole slaw, and top it all off with their authentic New England bread pudding.
Coffee and Dessert:
Looking for something sweet to finish things off? Bread & Roses Bakery is happy to end your meal with treats made from Maine blueberries including coffee cake, blueberry crumble and pie. Speaking of pie, anyone who has visited the Maine Diner in Wells can tell you that their pies are out of this world, and can also be delivered right to your door. What about donuts (they’re not just for breakfast!!)? Congdon’s will ship your favorite varieties of their world-famous donuts and fritters. Of course dessert must be accompanied by coffee, so consider indulging in one of Morning In Paris’ specialty blends. And did you know that you can even have real, handcrafted Maine ice cream shipped to you? Thanks to Rococo Ice Cream , you can!
Those who visit us regularly already know about the iconic Goldenrod , candy manufacturer and purveyor in the area since 1896, but did you know you can have their confections delivered to you? They are famous for their saltwater taffy kisses, but their chocolate barks, caramel corn and fudges are also sure to please the most discerning sweet tooth. Other options for candy made and shipped from the Maine Beaches include Yummie’s , Harbor Candy Shop , and Robin’s Confections .
Hoping for a little taste of a lot of things? Don’t forget about Stonewall Kitchen for all your flavorful mixes (from pancakes to breads), ingredients, and a wide selection of cooking tools to ensure your Maine meal is perfectly prepared.
Whether you bring Maine to your table, pack it in your picnic basket, or share it at the backyard barbeque, we promise that if you close your eyes and let your taste buds take over, you’ll almost be able to hear the ocean lapping the shore and smell the faintest scent of briny sea air!
