Enjoy an opportunity to skip the typical Bay Area tourist traps and dive deep into the food culture, history, architecture, and current happenings of this European-inspired oasis. > 3 hours, 6 stops - tons of fun!
I believe there may not be a better way to travel than to discover what the locals are eating and experiencing during their normal daily lives. Plus, you get to meet different people from all over and bond over a common love of food and fun. I started Local Food Adventures in 2014 as the Rockridge Food Tour, after getting to know the butcher, baker ... and if we had one, the candlestick maker. My husband knew that I loved being a part-time food tour guide in Chicago while I was in grad school and saw this as a great way to support the small, local businesses in our neighborhood. When I became pregnant six months later with our now three-year-old son, these tours have become the perfect way for this local working mom to share the food and cultural urban village experience that only the East Bay has to offer.
