Rosemont Market & Bakery was born in 2005, from parents with long and varied experience in the world of food. Co-owners Scott Anderson and John Naylor worked together at the beloved Portland Greengrocer for ten years. Before that, Scott cooked at Back Bay Grill, after years cooking in France and Switzerland. John cut his teeth in the food world buying and cutting fish, eventually opening the Grouper Cafe, a restaurant he co-owned in Mt. Kisco, New York.

Rosemont began as one cozy store on Brighton Avenue. In the early days, we were five people. Today we employ more than 75 people. We have a 24/7 bakery and kitchen, five markets in neighborhoods in Portland and Yarmouth, and a warehouse which distributes to our markets and wholesales to restaurants. We also have a delivery service to the islands of Casco Bay and an events-planning wing.

We are committed to growing intelligently while retaining the feel of those smaller, simpler days. We think we’re doing pretty well with that.

RMB-Our-Staff-Commercial-St-2Everyone who works for Rosemont loves food, and loves the conversations about food that pop up continually in our stores. The guy behind the butcher counter can’t wait to tell you about the farm and feed a particular animal was raised on and how best to serve the cut you choose. The gal serving cheese knows the difference between Brie de Meaux and Camembert. The guy helping you find the perfect wine to serve with dinner is happy to tell you all about the small producers in a wine region he’s visited.

Make sure you chat us up. Helping others be smart about what foods they consume benefits us all.

Rosemont is about making available the widest possible array of locally grown foods and locally raised animals. We source food from farmers we know whose practices we trust. Longstanding relationships with these local farmers enable us to bring you the freshest, most delicious, produce possible each season and a wide variety of locally sourced meats year round.
