Old Port Candy Co. is a family-owned candy shop located in the heart of Portland’s Old Port. We specialize in nostalgic, creative, and hard-to-find candy for customers of all ages. Our fresh fudge is made in-house, and we carry an ever-changing selection of classic flavors and delicious new creations. We also specialize in Maine confections! On a typical day in the shop, you’ll find many Maine-themed treats such as chocolate-covered blueberries, gummi lobsters, seasonally available salt water taffy, and maple sugar candy. Located in the historic waterfront district, Old Port Candy Co. has become a Portland, Maine staple for locals and tourists alike!

We enjoy connecting with our community and are proud to carry many local vendors, including Bixby Chocolate, La Nef Chocolate, Wilbur’s of Maine, Haven’s Candies, Maine Needham Company, Coastal Maine Popcorn Co., Maine Maple Products, and more!

We believe that candy is not just for kids! We’ve found that candy brings back nostalgic memories from childhood and can be a wonderful way to connect, celebrate traditions, and share new experiences with loved ones. We’re honored to be a part of countless Portland, Maine memories and magical moments.
