This is the best place in this area for local & organic produce, eggs and meat. They have fresh fish each day off the boat from the seacost of NH and Boston. They also make awesome sandwiches, salads and lobter rolls (voted best in NH)....More

Near little place on Mail st. I'm Lincoln. Nicely prepared, excellent lobster, no frills. Lots of goods eats available, but I went for the lobster roll.

When I lived in Lincoln, this was my favorite place in town to shop for groceries – much better than Price Chopper, plus it's owned by a local couple.

We shopped here at least 3 times over a week long stay and were very happy with the quality of the products as well as the service. We had them pack great sandwiches for our outings and overall, were really happy with everything we had.

This farmers market/specialty food store has a creative sandwich menu made on the spot to go. There is no seating inside. A picnic table outside for good weather but the sandwiches and the seasonal pumpkin soup were great.

Read on TripAdvisor that this was the place to stop and get a lobster roll. So glad we did. It was great! Nice store with organic produce. Service was outstanding.
