About the shop
Heritage Seaweed is a boutique specialty shop in downtown Portland. We specialize in all things seaweed. Specifically: Maine-made specialty foods, teas, bath and body products, candles and art. We also carry books, blank cards, sustainable drinkware, oyster accoutrements, home goods, kids' books, shaving gear & many other Maine gifts.
We're a locally owned business supporting Maine's working waterfront -- as well as its artisan food makers, craftspeople and fine artists. In fact, roughly 80% of our items are made right here in Maine. Please stop in and get to know Maine's (and the world's) next big thing: seaweed!
