Great Tour - and tasty too!

From the first welcome to the last chocolate we all had fun. The furthest that we walked was a couple of minutes, whilst we had sufficient time at each location. There was a good variety of flavours (I'm British, that's how we spell it!), and plenty of good history. It's encouraged the three of us to revisit Pasadena. The only (and small) disappointment was at the final stop where we were shown gorgeous chocolates, but could only sample a simple chocoate. Every other stop was amazing.

Want a fun thing to do on a Saturday?? This is it; even if you have been to the Farmers Market 100 times this is an informative; fun and tastey 2.5 hours. Our tour guide Andrew was very knowledgeable; friendly & remembered everyones name!! His "intern" Armando was a great side kick for Andrew and was equally enjoyable!

A wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning! Andrew never stopped dropping informative facts and tidbits about the market. Will do another tour just because of him.

Andrew did a great job as a guide with our small group! I especially loved hearing about the history of the farmer's market. The food was incredible and getting the background behind each shop made it all the more special. Definitely would recommend for anyone who loves history and a good bite to eat!
