Our Mission

and giving back to community


Salem Food Tours’ Mission

Salem Food Tours’ mission advocates for small business.  As we educate and entertain guests, we also invite you to not only eat and shop locally in Salem, but to enjoy discovering and supporting small businesses wherever you live or travel.  As we say every Tour, “eat local, shop local, and support small business!” 
We believe in sustainability, with many of our Tour Partners sourcing from small area farms, and Tour stops at the Salem Farmer’s Market in season.

Supporting our Community

Salem Food Tours volunteers time and resources to our local community throughout the year.  We also believe in supporting local arts and are a long standing member of the Salem Arts Festival committee, a member of Destination Salem, and a member of the Salem Chamber of Commerce.
