Enjoy local seaweed-based food and drink specials – from kelp burgers to craft cocktails – at participating restaurants and bars in Portland and across the state, from Friday, April 19, through Sunday, April 28. Let’s celebrate this sustainable superfood that supports Maine’s working waterfront (More than 1 million pounds will be harvested this month alone!)

Check our website for a list of participating businesses. You’ll also find info on events like cooking workshops, beach ID walks, and “Seaweed Saturday,” a free, all-ages expo featuring seaweed food, films, art, science, and marketplace vendors at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute on Portland’s working waterfront.

Maine Seaweed Week is presented by Maine Sea Grant and Heritage Seaweed.
