Shopping for Native American Art and Local Products

The Wabanaki, or People of the Dawnland, have incorporated Maine’s natural resources into their works of art for millennia. Whether as a gift or to add beauty to your home, finding that perfect ash basket or incredible piece of beadwork is a wonderful way to share your love of Maine.

You can find Native American artwork to purchase across the state at galleries and museums like Home & Away in Kennebunkport, which features works from renowned basketweaver Jeremy Frey. The Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner and Maine Craft Portland are both excellent resources for indigenous Maine products, as well.

The Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor has a gift shop known for it’s large and varied inventory of Native art. After visiting the museum with its permanent and changing exhibitions, including the major installation of Wabanaki: People of the Dawn, browse the gift shop and take home a handcrafted remembrance of your visit.

Micmac Farms in Caribou is open year-round on Fridays and Saturdays. Here you’ll find canned and baked goods, art, local meats and live brook trout.

There are also annual fairs and markets that feature Wabanaki art for sale:

You can always visit the online Wabanaki Marketplace, too. There you can browse the many traditional art forms made by the Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot nations, ranging from handmade ash and birchbark baskets to jewelry.
