On this walking tour, you’ll meet the friendly vendors behind a variety of shops (not just seafood), learn how the Fish Market runs, where to spot the best produce, and of course experience amazing tastes.
Karyn, your experienced Foodi host, will share interesting stories about the Fish Market, its location and history, and let you into the secret of how a Dutch Auction works. And with your free shopping bag, you might even come away with some gourmet ingredients for your weekend meal. Or, simply enjoy the food samples along the way, including a sushi treat, you won't soon forget!
With a philosophy of 'try before you buy', you'll enjoy food samples and opportunities to purchase, across a range of outlets, including green grocer, delicatessen, bakery, seafood vendors, butcher and boutique wine shop. There'll also be an important morning pit stop for coffee.
From the creators of the long-running Foodi Walking Tours of Sydney, comes a brand new, limited-run adventure for foodies, who enjoy trying new foods, spoiling themselves with gourmet treats, and shopping for great produce to cook with at home.
Included in your tour price will be the services of our experienced guide. You'll also be offered a range of entertaining information, exposure to the best produce, a free cooler bag for your shopping purchases, tasty food samples, and access to selected Market discounts.
Some walking will be involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it, but the tour will be mostly under cover.
This is a special, limited-run tour with only 1 date currently open. Book now to avoid disappointment. You must have a pre-paid ticket to attend the tour.
It is a great tour with like-minded foodies.
