Taste of Ellsworth goes digital

Six downtown eateries highlighted in videos

ELLSWORTH — Taste of Ellsworth, the annual celebration of downtown Ellsworth eateries, will feature six downtown destinations in a digital format in June. Sponsorship support is provided by Machias Savings Bank

Heart of Ellsworth has teamed up with new-to-Ellsworth residents Wayne and Jemily Ayers-Creech to highlight Airline Brewing Co., Finn’s Irish Pub, Flexit Café & Bakery, Fogtown Brewing Co., Provender Kitchen + Bar and Serendib. All have signed on to join the COVID-19-safe celebration and each will be the focus of a video produced by the foodie duo.

In April, Wayne and Jemily hit Main Street, video camera in hand, to interview each participating eatery owner on location. Owners shared the story behind their establishment, their passion for food and how their path led them to downtown Ellsworth. At the end of each interview, the couple order take-out, return to their in-house studio and break bread together. Tasting each dish on camera, they offer a review and encourage viewers to eat locally and support the downtown dining establishments.

The community is encouraged to follow along during the month of June. Each week, a new video will be released on the Heart of Ellsworth YouTube, Instagram and Facebook platforms.

The mission of Heart of Ellsworth is to promote economic, artistic, cultural, educational, historical and environmental activities in the “Downtown” area to provide a vibrant community for all residents, businesses, nonprofit organizations and local government.
