CLICK ON IMAGE (LEFT) FOR VIDEO. One of tenants we’re most proud to host here on Saco Island is the Saco Island Deli. Owners Mark and Michelle Claussen have owned and operated the deli for more than ten years. They are hard workers, and they emphasize local, fresh ingredients. In fact, the word “deli” may be a bit of a misnomer, because “gourmet” is always available at the Saco Island Deli. They help make life here on the Island something special, and in case you missed the news, their Turkey Rueben was recently voted one of the Best Sandwiches in Maine.

If you watch this video, you'll see that Mark is very generous in crediting businesses like the Run of the Mill Brew Pub and the Saco River Market with helping to build foot traffic here at the Island. And although they direct customers to him, we know for a fact that the Deli is a magnet --- its sterling reputation for quality, and inventive, tasty treats draws people to the Island and has helped introduce customers to all the other businesses here. To throw two clichés at you in one sentence, one hand washes the other and a rising tide floats all boats!

CLICK ON THIS VIDEO for a quick intro to the deli and a chat with Mark Claussen. But be warned --- it’ll make you hungry!
