Portland Greengrocer

by rkid21

Does anyone have any info on the Portland Greengrocer (211 Commercial Street, Portland, Maine)? What do they sell? Is it a specialty store? A deli? A bakery?

Thank you!

by adg-maine

currently it is a specialty food store. until last year, it had a full fledged deli, bakery, and fresh fruits and vegetables. alas, no longer.

best bread in portland is at standard baking company down the street and at sophia's (with odd hours) on market street.

Travel Tips for Portland

Cooking lobster

by SLLiew

It is much cheaper to buy live lobster in Maine and cook it by yourself than to eat out at the restaurant.

Simple cooking steps:

1) Get a pot with a lid and put enough water to cover lobster comletel.

2) Use 1 table spoon of salt for every liter of water.

3) Boil water and add live lobster for about 10-15 minutes depending on size of lobster.

4) Melt some butter and dinner is ready.

While in a restaurant, you may wear a bib to protect your clothes.

At home, you can wear a T-shirt, make a mess and enjoy the lobster.

Laid back

by worldglobetrotter

If flying, it is key to pack light. I managed with just a carry on--had no problems. If you plan on buying a lot of souvenirs, you may want to bring a collapsible duffel bag in the bottom of your suitcase. You can always stuff your dirty laundry in the duffel bag and check it, while stowing your souvenirs in your carry on. No need to dress to impress. While I wouldn't recommend dressing in a burlap bag, I do recommend bringing comfortable clothes. Check the weather before you leave and pack accordingly. Bring an umbrella...we got caught in a torrential downpour without one. If you plan on going to a nice restaurant, bring some nice clothes. Otherwise, casual is the way to go. But most of all, bring comfortable shoes. I tried to dress too cute and paid the price. The second day, I said goodbye to my new sandals and Hello to my beloved New Balance sneakers. Blisters aren't fun! Sun screen...don't forget this or you'll end up looking like a lobster. Bug spray is a good idea since mosquitoes are abundant. A good product is Avon's Skin So Soft Bug Guard with SPF. Works like a charm. If you plan to pack light, bring small travel-size bottles filled with your shampoo, conditoner, body soap, facial cleanser...Try to bring only enough for the duration of your trip, then toss the bottles at the end of the trip. Same with makeup...if you have just a little dab of foundation, take it along and toss it out there. Leaves more room for souvenirs.
Don't forget bandaids, Tylenol or Ibuprofen, stomach ailment aids, aloe gel in case you get sunburned, etc. So much to see here, not enough film! I opted for digital this trip, so I took 3 memory cards. Bought a fourth one while there. I like to take photos (esp. of Houses I'd Like To Live In). Digital cameras and memory cards will not be damaged going through the x-rays in the airports. Just don't check them! They could end up "missing."

If you go the film route, make sure your film is hand-inspected or you could run the risk of having your film damaged. Don't forget the bug spray and sun block!

"Whale Wall" by Robert Wyland, OLD PORT.

by ladyanne

Portland is the most diversified city you can find. It's wealth of the city life and it's waterfront port are truly charming.

This is the "Whale Wall" painted in the 1980's by Robert Wyland. He painted murals like this at many seaports or Large lake cities all over the United States. Also another example of the great old stone buidlings in the background. This wall is opposite the entrance to the Casco Bay Ferry Lines.

You must take time to take a trip out to the islands on the Casco Bay Ferry Lines at the end of Franklin St. and on Commerical St. Waterfront.

Camden Area Things to See

by BruceDunning

There are two primary tour sites with some history. The Owls Head transportation museum is at Owls Head; close to Rockland. It is opne 10-5 daily. Features are old cars and planes. The Old Conway house and gorunds has 5 builidings to tour besdies the home form 1770's. However, it may be closed. The visitor center said they are open 10-4 Tues-Sat. No one was there, though to open.
Otherwise, take a walk around Camdne to see the old 1800's structures.

Great food, could use better servers

by sarabee about Street and Company

I really loved this restaurant, as did my boyfriend, The Chef. The decor was nice, hammered copper, lots of wood, candles, and a neat open kitchen. The raw bar was busy, with guys shucking oysters that would soon be at our table. The menu is small, but appealing, and the food was great. I didn't, however, care for our server. Each time we spoke to her it was as though we were bothering her; she acted very informal for an upscale restaurant, leaning on our table to talk to us. She seemed to really want us to hurry and finish, and although it was a slow Sunday night, our dirty appetizer dishes sat on the table as we ate our main course. This being said, I would still go back in a heartbeat. Our shaved fennel salad was yummy and the fresh fish was incredible. Great wine list, have some sparkling wine and oysters!
