"Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it."    - Julia Child

History

In what has become the burgeoning economy of fine food that Portland Maine has and still is becoming, Aurora Provisions is considered an institution among the community. For over 20 years in the same location, always independently owned (incidentally by women), we have grown from a small, neighborhood market and gathering place to a regionally celebrated, one-of-a-kind hybrid of great food. Whether in our ever growing and changing market or in our highly regarded catering department, Aurora has earned its place in the fiber of the food world.

MISSION

The beauty of our food is in our commitment to seasonal products and menus. It’s a common sight to see the same trucks from our farmers’ market pulling up to our back door with everything from organic mushrooms & heirloom tomatoes to locally raised meat & fresh milk. We have spent 15 years nurturing our relationships with growers and farmers who are now counted as friends and family. We are proud members of SlowFood USA, MOFGA and support Maine’s growing sustainable and community supported agriculture endeavors.
