    Read Part I Here. Given that Portland has no shortage of places to eat lunch, it might seem kind of odd that I’m spending two entire days talking about the food options housed in one building. But part of the beauty of the food scene at Public Market House (beside its pure deliciousness) is that […]

    Situated on Monument Square, it might be fair to say that the Public Market House symbolizes the heart of the local foods movement in Portland. Opened in 2006, following the collapse of Betty Noyce’s visionary-but-doomed Public Market project, the current public market opened in a converted Army-Navy store as a partnership between four of the […]

    Valentine’s Day, at our house, means something a little different than it does for the rest of the country. Sure, my husband gets me flowers, and now that we have a kid we do spend time making cards and getting ready for the inevitable classroom Valentine party (which includes watching Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, […]

    Port Bean in five words: Sunny, Bright, Warm, Tasty, Surprising. Sometimes, on a winter’s day, that is exactly what you need. I wasn’t planning to visit Port Bean. I’d walked by it about a hundred times, but on this particular Maine winter day it was slushy and icy and I was hungry, and suddenly the […]

    Let’s imagine you want to open a frozen yogurt shop. In Portland, Maine. Great idea, right! Your shop is the third in a tiny chain of well regarded shops dedicated to making a delicious, locally-sourced product. Terrific – a perfect fit for Portland. But, here’s the catch … you have your grand opening in October. […]
