Welcome to the newly redesigned Portland Food Map website — the first overhaul in nearly 11 years in operation.
As you can see the new site has an updated visual design while preserving the familiar structure and core features of the PFM 1.0. Behind the curtain is a flexible new technical platform that will make it much easier to keep the site updated with all the latest news and information. The site delivers content in a much more responsive, mobile friendly format, and integrates feeds from the PFM instagram and twitter accounts, adding new dimensions to the information available through the site. There’s also a new integrated search feature that indexes the entire restaurant directory and nearly 8,000 blog posts from the past decade the site’s been in business.
To celebrate the new site, I’m also releasing a limited-edition offline version: a pocket-sized printed Portland Food Map. You can pick-up your copy while supplies last at the Little Giant market in the West End, Maine & Loire in the East End, Portland Trading Co. in the Old Port, and Rose Foods on Forest Ave.
Portland Food Map has been supported in this evolution by Evergreen Credit Union, the first sponsor for PFM. Evergreen was looking for opportunities to promote resources that are important to the culture and vibe of the Portland community, and I’m honored that Portland Food Map was chosen as one of them. They’ve been terrific and a true partner in this big step forward for PFM.
Also crucial to the relaunch has been Dawn Hagin from the marketing consulting firm Rare Bird Strategic, Sarah Hines and her web development team at Shines & Jecker Laboratories, and graphic designer Sofija Razgaitis.
I hope you enjoy the new site!

YIKE! CHANGE. Seriously, looks great.
This looks absolutely amazing. A hearty congratulations to all involved.
Wow. Gobsmacked! I only wish you branched out so that those of us who don’t live in Portland, and get tired of how chi chi it is getting, could get info about the world beyond the immediate Portland area. You don’t have anything else to do…do you? Thanks.
While I loved the old school bare bones thing you had before, this is so much better! Beautiful site 🙂
Digging the new design! Going to try and get one of the printed maps (it’ll be a coveted collectible in a few years).
Congratulations! The site looks great and I’m so excited to see what’s coming!
