“This is a great “healthy” conscious market a couple of streets from us. Great wine , craft beer, bakery, fresh produce just to name a few. Many products are from local Maine farmers. There are also a few tables and chairs for sitting outside.”

Book Store
“I selected YES BOOKS to head up my local tour of bookstores, because it is just the most wonderful place to mess around in... books stacked all over, rare and out of print, everywhere. It is located across the street from the Portland Museum of Art. There is also CASABLANCA COMICS ; THE GREEN HAND BOOKSHOP; The CARLSON & TURNER ANTIQUARIAN, I have never been to, but I will ... We do have a few independent bookstores, selling contemporary books and magazines. My favorite is LONGFELLOW BOOKS, a staple on Monument Square, and the newcomer to Portland, PRINT, a calm space I took a liking to right away...”
