LocalYokel: Knox County, Maine

LocalYokel brings you the goods from someone who should know, since you’re in their backyard. This one’s from our plainspoken Senior Ayuh Correspondent, midcoast born and raised.

EAT

Billy’s Tavern [1 Starr St., Thomaston] Giant jenga. Fresh seafood. Largest selection of single malt and irish whiskey in Maine.

Thomaston Cafe [154 Main St., Thomaston] Fresh, natural and local food, dictates the menu.  Early morning breakfast and brunch. They make great ‘to go’ lunch boxes.

Rock City Coffee [254 Main St., Rockland] Kinda eat?  Drink coffee at least. Smells awesome. Sells fresh roasted beans as well.

SLEEPGranite Inn [546 Main St., Rockland] Pet friendly, eco friendly.

The Inn at Camden Place [14 Tannery Lane, Camden] On the canal in downtown Camden. Historical — it used to be a shirt factory.

Samoset Inn [220 Warrenton St., Rockport] Not small, but if you want a resort this is it. Private cottages, golf course(s?), and multiple pools, one with a swim up bar.

GO

Rockland Farmers Market [Harbor Park, Rockland] Seasonal market, kinda goes in the ‘eat’ section as well. And they have pickled fiddleheads!

Maine State Prison Showroom [358 Main St., Thomaston] Cheep cheep convict-made products. The former grounds of the prison are now a cool park out back to walk around in.

Maine Wine Trail [vineyards of midcoast Maine; yes there’s more than one] Well, firstly, it exists. And only in Maine do they have a ‘drive yourself’ wine and hard alcohol trail.
