NEWS: North Shore Food Tours launches!
Salem Food Tours is pleased to announce our new excursions: North Shore Food Tours. North Shore Food Tours are chartered day-long tours for larger groups. On these Tours, we’ll visit area farms, wineries, distilleries, and eateries. Guests will enjoy tastings at every stop, and enjoy scenic views from our comfortable coach. You’ll come back with a deeper appreciation for our amazing region and where our local Salem Chefs and shops get their inspiration from. North Shore Food Tours are the perfect day trip for larger private or professional groups.
Want to join in on a Tour? We are running a public North Shore Food Tour Thursday August 29th! Our day will begin around 9.45am in Salem and return to Salem at 5.30pm. We’ve had a lot of interest already, and at the time of this writing 26 spots remain. Advanced reservations required ($125 per person.) Excursion will include stops at two farms – including private tours, cheese making, bag lunch; one winery stop with tastings; one special sweet place; and a couple of wonderful eateries that reflect the best of local foods.

Salem is not only a great place to sit down for a great meal, but also has wonderful public parks to enjoy take-out or a picnic. Green spaces are all around the downtown and waterfront areas – so take advantage of this warm season and eat outside!
Shown here: ready for the picnic basket — fresh local cheese, crackers and luscious grapes at Milk & Honey Green Grocer. And we absolutely love their sandwiches! On the right: Flying Saucer pizzas – with locally sourced toppings – are perfect for your spread. For more ideas see
