We take the friction out of starting a food business


Fork Food Lab is a membership based shared kitchen, with all the commercial equipment needed for food production. We have over 30 companies working side by side to start or grow their businesses. It is the perfect place to test a concept and an amazing community to be a part of. There are scholarship opportunities for start ups sourcing mostly local produce.

We also rent space for one off uses and events.


We give to Fork Food Lab because the Lab is where local food businesses that we love find a home to grow. Fork is laser focused on the development of local scalable businesses that are intimately linked to the sustainability of the small farms that make Maine the best place in the world to live. A donation to Fork Food Lab is a vote of confidence in our food ecosystem and our local entrepreneurs.”
