Make no mistake, they are doing business for sure. And they are open. But it is not a storefront.

Meaning you don’t go into the ‘store’ and browse around and see something and say “I’ll buy that”.

First, the owners of Downtown Charcuterie operated out of Fork & Spoon on Main Street in Bangor before Fork & Spoon stopped serving customers at the end of May and officially closed at the end of June.

But now they have their own location in Downtown Bangor, but not a storefront.

Let’s get to what they do.

And the way it works is you go to their website or Facebook page, and see what is offered, and get in touch with them.  They will make what you want for your occasion. You pick it up or it is delivered for your event.

Ashley started out making charcuterie boards for parties and friends and family and quickly realized she was onto something. Alison came on board because she too has a passion for creating works of art that we can eat.
