Try an Oyster CSA or Kickstart 'Maine's Best Lobster Roll'

You could even crowdfund a soup home-delivery business trying to go brick and mortar.

SCARBOROUGHMarty Macisso and son Marty, Jr. of Scarborough Fish and Lobster are crowdfunding Maine's Best Lobster Roll mail-order service to overnight wicker baskets full of quarter-pound lobster roll fixings. With 17 days remaining, the popular, seasonal lobster shack is seeking $5,000 for "the complete design and implementation of a full service online business, warehouse facility and full expansion of business." Looking for a taste upon completion? Pledge $80 for a $99 value on four lobster rolls with butter, mayo, and a gingham picnic blanket.

BATH — On the flip side, Charlene Tuplin is hoping to leverage her Bailey Island-based home-delivery soup business, Run With Soup, into a storefront location with more kitchen space. She says she's found a location in Bath and needs $10,000 to outfit the space and hire an employee. Pledge $25 to the Kickstarter campaign in the next 25 days for a quart of soup; quarts of rotating flavors like Cheeseburger or Late Summer Minestrone are also available online for just over $10, deliverable "from Bailey Island to Topsham."

BATH — He didn't reach his funding goal last spring, but Jordan Kramer persevered and launched Winnegance Oyster Farm. Now you can partake of the briny bounty. For $15/dozen, preorder your freshly-harvested oyster share for Friday or Saturday pick-up on Essex Street in Portland. Next spring, expect a more traditional advance-purchase CSA model.
