This Maine Bakery Has Been Around For 70 Years And We’re Loving Every Second

Maine’s history is full of highs and lows. From forts to museums to trails, the history here involves things dating as far back as 1000 BCE. While we love this history and tend to write about it quite a bit here at Only in Maine, we have to say that today we’re feeling seriously snacky. That means we’re particularly proud of our food history which includes celebrating one Maine bakery that’s been around for a very, very long time!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
