According to the Portland Press Herald, the super-popular grocery chain Market Basket could be looking at Topsham for its third location. There's a Market Basket in Biddeford (opened in 2013) and one in Westbrook at Rock Row (opened in 2020).

A real estate developer, John Matthews, said that he will go before Topshams planning board to build a Market Basket at the southern end of the Topsham Fair Mall. That's where Target and Home Depot live. But at the northern entrance of the Topsham Fair Mall, there is a Hannaford.

Market Basket has proven to be tremendously popular in Maine and they are very interested in the opportunity to further serve the residents of the state.


They are looking to build a Market Basket that is similar to the one at Rock Row in Westbrook.
