This legendary Maine restaurant is adding a new twist for the summer.

Erin French is the owner of The Lost Kitchen, located at 22 Mill Street, in Freedom, Maine. This place is a foodie's dream come true, so much so, that it has become something of a phenomenon.

Their brand new farmers’ market is opening for the season. You can join them at The Lost Kitchen, every Tuesday from 11 am-2 pm, to enjoy the new outdoor market filled with the freshest Maine produce, straight from some of their favorite farmers and makers.

In addition to 20 vendors, the home shop will be open, in addition to the wine shop.

You can visit them at the mill, when they open for the 2024 Season, on Tuesday, June 25th!

Incredibly, the restaurant has a capacity of only 48 seats and is so inundated with requests for reservations, that you have to send a postcard to have a shot at getting a table. Since they are only open from May to October, this is not an easy task. Diners are chosen through a random drawing. It is also popular, because of the beautiful location in Freedom, its unique cuisine, and farm-to-table dinners that have drawn raves from people all over the world.

Erin has made The Lost Kitchen so famous since its opening back in 2014, that is has its own TV show, which you can find on the Magnolia Network, which is now part of the Max streaming service.

Erin and her husband, Michael, travel across America to discover ideas for new recipes for the restaurant. The series premiere of GettingLost with Erin French, debuts on Sunday, June 23rd.

In addition, she has also authored books, and been featured on the Drew Barrymore Show, The Today Show, and CBS Sunday Morning.
