K. Horton Specialty Foods
Kris Horton is one of the anchor tenants in Portland’s Public Market House, a cooperative in Old Port’s Monument Square that opened back in 1988 and showcases Maine-made products. Her gourmet grocery and deli features countertops overflowing with 150 varieties of cheese, condiments, crackers, and the handmade wicker baskets that hold them. Since 1998, Horton has expanded her offerings beyond Maine to Europe and has added a number of prepared options. Smoked whitefish salad comes with or without mayo (go for "with"). K. Horton also serves Asian ginger vegetable salads, Greek pasta salads, pre-made wraps, and fresh bagels.
