Who we are

We opened The Local Variety on June 1st of 2016 with a vision of a bright and happy addition to the Main Street of Bucksport. A place where you could have something as simple and good as a hot cup of coffee and a place to sit with a friend. We live here, we work here, we play here. Bucksport is a former mill-town that is working to revive itself based on it's biggest strength- the community. 

At any given time if you walk by our door you will likely hear some laughter, some vibrant conversation, a kiddo on the hunt for a whoopie pie, people making connections. We love our visitors and thrive on our local community support. We're a family who believes in small town and small business. Thanks for getting local with us.
