Overwhelmed By Portland’s Massive Food Scene? Get the Portland Food Map
Be in the know of pretty much everything Portland food!
I had no idea that there was such a thing as the Portland Food Map. Not only is there one, but it's been around since 2007. It's a directory of the local food community. But it's grown since 2007 to have other features like food event listings, Sunday Brunch options, the Under Construction page, pandemic takeout list, the restaurant real estate listings, and most recently the My Kitchen Their Table chef interview column, and a list of restaurants and bars that require proof of vaccination for indoor service.
The website is super terrific, but the revised and expanded 2022 PFM Printed Pocket Guide is now out. And is amazing!
According to the PFM Instagram,
This handy paper reference highlights many of the restaurants, bakeries, breweries, coffee shops, cocktail bars, and cafes that make eating and drinking in Portland so compelling. 2022 remains a dynamic environment for the Maine restaurant industry so please consult the online version of Portland Food Map for the latest information and updates on openings as well as a full list of eateries in the city…and consult restaurant websites for the latest on days and hours of operation.
Unfortunately, there is no way to have one mailed at this point, and it appears there is no PDF version. But here is a listing of where you can grab one in Portland (and a couple of surrounding areas while supplies last).
- Portland Trading Company
- Rose Foods
- Oxbow Brewing Company (Washington Avenue)
- Portland Yoga Collective
- Tandem Coffee Roasters
- Bresca & Honeybee (New Gloucester)
- Rabelais Books (Biddeford)
If you are looking for some new places to try, or when that new brewery will open grab one of these handy dandy maps and take advantage of all that Portland has to offer!
