We were lucky to have a great guide in DianeScalia as she knew so much about the Farmers Market and its history and had personal contacts with stall holders. This personal touch made the tour above average and it was a special experience.

Lots to eat and lots of fun but all the time professional.

This company definitely knows how to run tours.

Great way to spend an afternoon

I've gone on this tour twice with friends, and it was fun and interesting both times. The food tasting is a highlight, of course, but seeing and hearing some of the local history is cool too. It's a great little tour which supports those awesome hole-in-the-wall, mom & pop places we all love to discover. I plan on taking the tour again (and again) with different friends so they can experience it too!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to explore the quirky corners of Old Town, taste some wonderful grub, and find those hidden gems which are overlooked in the shadows of the big chain stores.

What a Wonderful Treat!

My husband and I recently took the Farmers Market Food and History Tour with Diane and it was worth every penny. We wanted to learn about the market’s history and sample food from various vendors. We were able to accomplish both in a 2 ½ hour span. Our tummies were full and satisfied, what a wonderful treat!
