North Conway

In Conway Village across from the fire station is a place- the name escapes me at the moment- but I believe it is BYOB. There two new wine stores, both on rte 16 in North Conway. One is called Vitners- you can make your own wine and label your own bottles there. It is located in a strip mall behind a sandwich shop. It's in the same place as Bellini's- which is an absolutely fantastic Italian restaurant. The other wine store is Wine Thyme, it's on the corner of rte 16 and some side street- right next to the Toy Chest. This place is in the heart of North Conway, you can sit outside and have a glass of wine and watch the people go by.
For an organic market go to Katrina's Organic Market. Or if you are coming up from southern end, in a little town called Chocorua, on rte 16- is Rivendell Farm- organic grocer and the owner is the nicest person you could ever meet. The store is just off rte 16 at the blinking light in the center of the town.

This is probably too late to be of any help... for others reading and heading to the North Conway area... In Conway, on Rte 16 heading north there is a wonderful fresh fish place called Jonathans. They have a fresh fish market as well as dining. The new owner and his sweet Russian wife are awesome hosts. He cooks as well as comes out and greets customers. They are pretty kid friendly as well- it's not fine dining. Paper plates, and a chilodrens menu that my kids grooved on- Haddock nuggets! And right across the street from them, is a delightful little bakery called River Stones. You can get some very tasty treats there. Further up on Rte 16, if you take a right at the Burger King on Rte 302, just down the road and the left is a chinese restaurant that is pretty good.
For the kitchen equipment there is a shop in Settlers Green called Kitchen Collection. As far s specialty foods... hmmm... there is a nice Indian place called the Shalimar, it's on rte 16 as well. For organic and raw foods head to Katrina's Organic Market, furhter up on rte 16.
Hope you enjoyed your vacation.
