Chef’s Tour: Though many tourists are attracted to the famous Pike Place Market every year, local chefs also selectively choose their seasonal produce and proteins daily from the market. This tour gives us a taste of the vendors that supply the best chefs in town with their organic produce and sustainable seafood.

Chef’s Perspective: Tours are run by chefs who contribute a culinary perspective, telling the story of the Northwest through its food.

Local Taste: Partners are strategically chosen to ensure the best quality products of the Northwest are represented.

Small Groups: Group size is limited to 10 people and under to provide a more intimate, less touristy experience. This also creates a better dynamic to ask questions, absorb the information, and connecting with the other group members.

Purpose: More than just providing great tasting food, vendors serve as a talking point about farming, fishing, and produce in the Northwest and what they are doing to maintain higher quality control than the average. The team keeps the tours light-hearted but also brings some attention to the local food ecosystem and touches on awareness in certain industries.
