Do you know where your food comes from?
Locally sourced ingredients taste so much more delicious than what is shipped in from large food processing purveyors. And Maine has some of the best. Moreover, making and buying food locally supports local farms and fisheries, is sustainable, and builds community. For us, food is more than basic nutrition, it is a source of happy memories of shared meals with family and friends. Come celebrate the joys of food at ZaoZe Cafe and Market, providing Asian inspired ingredients and prepared foods to nourish both your body and soul.
In Chinese, 早 则 loosely translates to morning place. ZaoZe is sandwiched between Canopy Farms, our aquaponics greenhouse above, and fish tanks in the basement, which feed the plants above, behind Tao Yuan Restaurant which uses much of the produce, some of which we sell in the shop.
