Portland company introduces new food tours // (c) 2013 Forktown Food Tours
Forktown Food Tours, which guides visitors on culinary journeys through Portland’s neighborhoods, is adding new tours to help hungry travelers better explore the city’s core.
Starting in April 2013, Forktown is offering guided one-hour tours of the renowned Portland farmers market on Saturdays at Portland State University. The experience allows guests to gain a deeper understanding of the city's farm-to-fork food scene and learn the stories behind some of the vendors.
Inspired by all of the businesses that have recently opened in the area, Forktown is also introducing culinary walking tours of downtown from Thursday through Sunday beginning in April. The tours showcase the different styles of eateries that make Portland's culinary scene so dynamic. Among the six to seven stops will be a food cart, a sweet shop, a fine dining restaurant and an educational or hands-on experience.
And, beginning in May, the company is putting its own unique spin on a two-hour downtown food cart tour on Fridays and Saturdays.
