Not sure about the roadside stand near Bethel.... but here's a link to a copy of the whoopie pie recipe used by a classic Maine cook named Marge Standish.... should give you a great "whoopie" whether or not it's an exact duplicate of the one you got in Bethel.
Here's another recipe since using a filling made with raw egg-whites is a no-no these days. Raw eggs can have salmonella. Yes, I know, grandma always used the raw egg whites....but believe it or not, eggs were a lot safer in the olden days.
Thanks for the recipes! There are also a lot of variations on the internet, but hoping to get as close to those from the little stand as possible. They were great. If anyone knows this person, please let them know.
....Funny what you take for granted when Whoopie Pies have always been on your mom's dessert menu. Glad that you like them, txsue!
The prices have gone up since Whoopie Pies were featured on "Oprah", but I can vouch for the delicious, authentic whoopies from Labadie's Bakery, available at whoopiepies dot com
For the best higher quality (gourmet) whoopie pies, definitely do https://capewhoopies.com . Awesome flavors like ginger/bourbon and apple/caramel with cute names and nice packaging. You can just get them shipped by the dozen.

Five years later, and we just had cookies with Maple Cream filling from this same stand. And yes she had Whoopie Pies and a pie for sale. Sorry I can’t remember the name of her bakery- which she had posted. But maybe someone will see this again on Trip Advisor and catch it!
