The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hit the Maine Coast for Less in Rockland


4. Insider’s Tip

Local co-op Good Tern Natural Foods allows non-members as shoppers.  

You’ll find the best provisions for a picnic at local co-op the Good Tern, which is open to the public. Pick up items like pesticide-free blueberries ($5.49 a quart) and Bilinski’s chicken sausages ($5.85). The best place for a picnic is on one of the hidden tables along the rock bluffs at Birch Point State Park ($2 for parking), where you’ll also find a grill for preparing your meal (bring your own charcoal).
