About

Our Maine Lobsters And Fresh Seafood Market

Pine Tree Seafood is built on the importance of family, respect for the environment, and the support of our local community. It was founded by Jim Hartley and his father-in-law Dick Whitmore. Both came from very different backgrounds Jim in hospitality and Dick in 40 years of coaching college basketball at Colby College. What they have in common (besides the amazing Mrs. Hartley) is the desire to give back to the community they love. Pine Tree Sea Food gives back in several ways. We are partnered with the area fishermen and farmers who are the backbone of our community. Over 75% of the goods in our store are from local fishermen, farmers, and artisans, or companies who distribute from local sources.

We offer both our immediate Scarborough neighbors and our national customers fresh, sustainable seafood they can trust. At our physical location on Route 1 we offer organic, fresh produce grown just a few miles from the store. We also invest 10% of our profits back into the area economy through local foundations, charities, and organizations. It's our belief that the business community at its best can be a kind of family. That's why we extend the benefits of our family business approach to Scarborough and its surrounding companies, fishermen, and farmers. We also believe that by sharing our fresh seafood with customers nationwide, it's yet another way to connect our American family from coast to coast. It's simply the Pine Tree way, from our farms and boats to your table, from our family to yours.
