Salem Food Tours  

Our official City welcome!

We were so pleased to officially ‘cut our ribbon’. The October 18th ceremony took place on Pickering Wharf. Location: the best store front we could ever ask for – beautiful Salem Harbor – the ultimate beginning of a food journey with our spice trade history!Thank you to our attendees, which included Salem Mayor Kimberley Driscoll and some of our wonderful Tour Partners and friends. And thank you to ALL for your support these first couple of months, it’s been a wonderful beginning. We look forward to future Tours with smiles.

Tours return in November… 

We thank all of our recent guests who attended our Food Tours.  As the streets get busier to celebrate the Halloween holiday, we will go ‘dark’ through most of the end of October. Tours will be starting up again in November. We are now booking for Friday, November 2nd.  If you would like to participate in this or any other date, click here

Parking in Salem

Visiting Salem? We know it can be scary to park here during Halloween. Check out the cities new website that helps break down the parking options downtown.

Did you know?
 Salem shops like Milk and Honey, one of our Food Tour Partners, keep locally made products on their shelves. This opportunity gives people like Angie Adams of ApotheCaring – a local herbal tea company – the customer visibility they need.  (Btw, we are admittedly addicted to Angie’s delicious Fireside Tea – which we recently sampled on a Food Tour.  It makes a cold night so much warmer! Find her fine teas at Milk and Honey.)
