Seaplane Fly In Best Food Stops

Our first stop is typically to find Jan’s Mini Donuts. Get coffee and donuts here at the vendor cart typically set up near the airplane hanger. Then I like to go look for Jan’s Heavenly Pickles. She makes the best Dilly Beans.  Her pickles are great too. Next it is off to look for Sawyer’s Maple Syrup. Great rubs and the Maple Syrup products are reasonably priced. Then go look for Worcester’s Wild Blueberry Products. They make fresh blueberry pies. Buy a whole pie.  There are many other food vendors selling fudge, baked goods and food carts.

Seaplane Fly In Favorite Craft Stops

I visit this crafter first to get the best selection. Sweaters by Beth Made in Maine. I have many and love them all. Next look at jewelry. There are some very nice pieces from precious Maine stones. Love the Maine watermelon tourmaline.  After jewelry, it is off to appreciate the pottery, photographers, painters, and woodworking. Soaps and lotions a must. My favorite is Old Tyme Soap Shop Premium Lotion- Lemon grass scented lotion is great for keeping bugs at bay. Then it is off to check out the Wood Carver, Joe Bolf, just past the Town Office on Midden Street.

Seaplane Fly In – Things to Do in Greenville, Maine

Watch the planes flying by. Organized fly overs downtown Greenville are always great to watch. A demonstration by the IF&W Forestry shows how they use a helicopter and bucket scoop to get water from the Lake to put out forest fires.  Check outThoreau Park and enjoy the flowers and gardens. Just across from the Dairy Bar.  Also take the scenic drive up to the airport.
