Maine-iak Lobster on Bath Road in Brunswick specializes in crab meat in addition to Maine’s signature crustacean. Sande Updegraph / For The Forecaster

Street food is characterized as ready-to-eat food or drinks sold by vendors from a truck or cart on a public street or at an outdoor market or festival. That really sums it up! The food items are usually diverse and often very unique and tasty. Here are some in the southern Midcoast area that will delight you this summer. Many thanks to Susan Karns, Brunswick’s deputy town clerk, for her research assistance.
