Market & Bakery
Tucked in the back corner of Calderwood Hall is a small market filled with a variety of basic provisions, along with an assortment of baked goods and sandwiches made daily.
With a focus on locally sourced items, the market shelves feature a bounty of fresh produce, meat and dairy, and many of our favorite Maine-made products.
At Calderwood, you can stock up on island-grown produce and all the ingredients for a picnic or family feast, then sit to enjoy a hot beverage and a cinnamon roll still warm from the oven.
Calderwood Hall was built in 1908 by Henry Calderwood as a community space. Over its hundred-year history, it has served as a dance hall, basketball court, movie theater, diner, meeting hall, and—for the last thirty years—as a seasonal gift shop.
In 2012, Cecily Pingree bought the building with the intention of turning it into a year-round space. Cecily, her father Charlie, and a couple of Toughcats renovated the space into four year-round apartments, a restaurant and market, and a brewery, owned and operated by North Haven Brewing Company.
Calderwood Hall Restaurant & Market opened its doors to the public in 2014 and has been bustling ever since.
Calderwood Hall Restaurant & Market is managed by a dedicated team of four year-round island women, Jessie Hallowell, Amilia Campbell, Lydia Brown, and Cecily Pingree.
Jessie Hallowell is the head chef and dough master. Having moved away from North Haven as a kid, and lived elsewhere across the country for the past few decades, Jessie moved back to the island with her two kids six years ago. Although she has been a teacher for over 20 years, cooking has evolved from an avocation to her other vocation. She grew up in kitchens with flour on her hands and dough on her spoon. Now she works with students at the community school to grow and cook healthy, delicious food. She believes that cooking for others and sharing food with them is how we take care of each other. In her free time, Jessie loves to run, read, swim, climb, dance, build things, and play with her kids and dog. Although most days she’s just found spinning around the kitchen mixing dough! She likes any pizza with sumac pickled onions on it.
Amilia Campbell is the assistant chef and house manager. Growing up on North Haven has rooted her deeply to the island, sea, and community. Although traveling stints have taken her far, home is where her man, her hound dog and the best whoopie pies can be found and thus where her heart truly lies. Amilia caught the kitchen brat bug when she was fifteen and hopped around, landing at Calderwood Hall three years ago. But her real love of cooking began at a young age while watching her Grammy bake with all the love and patience you can only expect from a grandmother.
Amilia is a healthy mix of all the Spice Girls. She is an active redhead who is the youngest on the Calderwood team. But don’t let her age fool you, she is the oldest of her five siblings and has learned how to be a powerhouse while wearing a romper and heels. Amilia’s favorite menu item is… "the desserts, duh".
Lydia Brown runs and manages the market in Calderwood Hall. Originally from the island next door, Lydia migrated across the Thoroughfare as a teenager. On North Haven, she put down roots, fell in love, and now raises a family. In addition to being a purveyor of local foods, Lydia writes about island history, dances in her kitchen, makes dill pickles, and travels North Haven in search of rhubarb patches and old apple trees.
Lydia has spent two years circumnavigating the entire shore line of the island. She is nearly complete, covering every creek, cove, beach and island cliff. Lydia is a fan of the Calderwood fishcakes and the new island beer brewed in the basement.
Cecily Pingree is the owner & general manager. Raised on North Haven, Cecily darted around the country for over a decade, landing back on the island when an old friend wanted to pass the torch of Calderwood Hall. Intrigued by the idea of creating a new community space and a sustainable island business, she shifted gears and started building.
Before launching Calderwood Hall, Cecily worked in film throughout her twenties and continues to co-run a video production company, Pull-Start Pictures. She lives in a small cabin that faces East, likes swimming in cold water, good stories, biking long distances and the dead of winter in the mountains. She is a partial towards the butternut squash & ricotta pizza.
