Throughout the month of October, Sushi Maine and Lois' Natural Marketplace will each donate 10% of their sales of the PINK rice organic Maine BEET sushi rolls. These rolls are available at Sushi Maine in So. Portland and Lois' Natural Marketplace in Scarborough and Portland.
Yes that's right, beet sushi! Now's your chance to try something new and healthy and delicious while supporting a great cause.
Inspired by Lois of Lois' Natural Marketplace, Sushi Maine’s rolls feature organically grown beets from Mid Ridge Farm in Casco and come in two versions: the "beet garden" roll with steamed organic baby spinach; organic carrots; red pepper and cucumber; and the other with arugula and amazingly fresh goat cheese from Fern Hill Farm in Naples.
Call Sushi Maine weekdays 8am - 3pm at 205-1431 to place your order for pick-up at 800 Main Street in South Portland. Casual dine-in available 11:30 - 2:30. Free delivery generally available for orders $25 or more with 24 hours notice.
All beet rolls purchased in October at Lois' Natural Marketplace in Scarborough and Portland will raise an extra 10% thanks to Lois' pledge to match Sushi Maine’s contribution.

Currently, Medicare and many private insurance policies fail to cover the costs of the daily compression supplies people with lymphedema need to control their swelling. People who can’t afford these supplies are left with worsening lymphedema, which can lead to infections and even long-term disability.

As leaders in the breast cancer movement and supporters of Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, we are committed to being a part of this important work."
