Our tour route will bring us through the historic, 200+-year-old Haymarket Market (Fridays and Saturdays only). We hear Julia Child used to shop here first thing in the morning! 

Our first stop is the two-year-old, indoor Boston Public Market, which is a must-visit, whether a local or a visitor to Boston. The Market is comprised of up to forty local food vendors, some of whose stories we’ll hear firsthand. We’ll also enjoy tastings throughout, including a popular doughnut*, honey, roasted nuts, and drinking vinegars. And how could we forget seafood? Will a lobster roll tasting at a Best of Boston Fish Market do? We thought so! 

Next we’ll visit the longest, continuously-running restaurant in the country, which Forbes ranks as one of the ten classic restaurants in thew world! There, we’ll enjoy its iconic chowder**.

The second half of the tour brings us to the historic North End, Boston’s Little Italy. There, we’ll visit THREE Best of Boston winners: a sandwich shop, a bread bakery, and a pastry bakery. And if we’re lucky, we might even score some just-made mozzarella cheese in a well-hidden Old World salumeria that was recently featured on Andrew Zimmern’s “Zimmern’s List”. 

Our tour will conclude with a little Italian dolce.

Join Boston’s tastiest food tour as we “Stroll. Sample. Savor. Repeat.” our way through the city’s best eats.

*Gluten-free donuts available.

**Substitutions available for vegetarians and/or non-seafood/pork eaters.
