Portland Food Shopping

This is my first post to this board, although I've been on Chowhound for about 6 or 7 years. I just moved to Portland from Astoria, Queens, and I'm happy to say my chowhound cravings have been well satisfied thus far.

I would love some advice about local shopping. I am particularly interested in fresh local produce and seafood. I have always imagined that in Maine I'd be able to buy fish directly, or almost directly, from area fishermen. Is that a dream? I've checked out the Public Market, and it seems fine, but I'm wondering if there are less glitzy and more direct alternatives?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
