5 years ago owner Monica Fletcher turned what was once her hobby into one of the best takeout places in the South Shore – Acorn Canning Company located at 1175 Ocean St, Marshfield, MA.
When you walk into Acorn Canning Company, you have a look into the funky fun that happens in the kitchen as your food is being created. Walls are covered with cookbooks and counters sport not only Fletcher’s creations, but support other local business’ products, such as Jenny D’s Bees Honey.
Each day, food is made from scratch and includes everything from homemade pies, towering to-die-for sandwiches, delicious salads, and heart-warming soups served with a sense of humor that leaves you wanting to go back for more.
The menu changes daily as Fletcher relies on the fresh local delivery of food and creates her menu based on what she has on hand. The daily offerings can be found on the Acorn Canning Facebook Page. Along with the regular menu items, customers can also call to request special dishes or dinner for the night.
The freshness is just part of what makes Acorn Canning Company’s food so good. What really makes Acorn Canning Company great is Monica Fletcher. She cooks with her whole heart, which you can taste in every piece of bread, pie, and biscuit she makes. But what’s more is the time she takes to get to know every customer (and when she sends your husband home with free soup and homemade tortillas when you are sick because she knows it’s your favorite).
