Tara Hire runs this very busy little grocery all year round. Right now its the only grocery, and a central part of Monhegan's experience for year round residents or if you want to stay here for a while. If you are a day tripper she carries excellent, locally sourced crabmeat sandwiches chowders, and interesting soups. Locally sourced, for Tara, includes an effective relationship with the Crown of Maine which carries all foods Maine as well as great baguettes that she makes early in the morning, cookies, and focaccia this morning. She also picks out an excellent variety of wines and beers as well as very fresh vegetables. The Carina has always been a eagerly anticipated part of our time on this working island that nonetheless welcomes its summer visitors thoughtfully.
