Do we only walk around and sample food?
Food samples are an important part of our tours but they would not be complete without learning about the uniqueness of Kennett Square's history and culture through our guided walking tour. In addition, you will have the opportunity to talk with chefs and watch cooking demonstrations.
How often are tours held?
Tours are currently offered Sunday afternoons beginning at 1pm from May through November.
Can I get a refund or reschedule my tour?
Tickets are non-refundable and can only be used for the date and time you selected.
What types of places will we visit and what kind of food will we be eating?
You will visit restaurants, markets, a specialty food shop, a market, and a brewery that are locally owned by proud members and supporters of our community. Many, if not all, of the chefs and artisans that you will meet are working hard to source their ingredients locally. We leave it up to the chefs at each restaurant to decide what the group will be sampling. The tour includes a mix of both savory and sweet tastings as well as wine or cocktail tasting, and a beer tasting from local establishments. Finally, Kennett Square is the Mushroom Capital of the World, so you can expect a dish or two to be prepared with mushrooms, but don't worry -- if you don't prefer mushrooms, you will not leave hungry!
How much food is served on the tour?
You will receive seven food tastings, one wine tasting, and one beer tasting over a three-hour period. Tours and appetites vary but most people will feel comfortably full at the conclusion of the tour.
