This small organic/natural foods co-op has been a fixture in Damariscotta for many years. In July 2009 they expanded into a much larger building across the road from their prior location. Since the move their beer selection has been greatly enlarged and has been continually improving.
They stock Sheepscot growlers, the Peak Organic beers, Spring Peeper Ale, DFH and have very recently (November 2009) started to include some North Coast, Smuttynose, Brooklyn, Thomas Hooker, Ommegang, Duvel and several other, not so easy to find in this area, offerings. Prices seem to be slightly better than Hannafordís or McKean & Charles.
They also carry wine, cheese and wide selection of fresh produce and packaged organic food. The staff seem cheerful and friendly.
August 2010 update The beer section has expanded slightly but seems less interesting with fewer quality seasonal offering and special bottlings. Prices continue to be good. It remains the best place in Damariscotta but the 1828 Vintage House in Boothbay and Rockland Foodservice both have better selections.
