    I just recently moved to the area and wanted to lear a little bit about my community while at the same time finding out where the vegan/vegetarian restaurants are. Ivy was an excellent guide!
    Great Tour Guide

    Our tour guide, Will, made the experience exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the Pines Place Market. We sampled 15-20 unique food and drinks and toured the most(?) of the market.

    Ivy was an excellent guide. She has a lot of really tasty foods on the tour. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous. Highly recommended tour.
    Great variety of food selections and fantastic guide, Will
    Barbara_B, Jun 2023
    Will was fantastic giving us some history and such an assortment of food and drink selections! Our group of 3 had a blast and Will was able to accommodate a gluten sensitivity as well. The selection of tastings included such a variety and exposed us to some unbelievable items in Pike market that we would have never found. Above all, Will made the day one to remember and added so laughs in as well.

    My grandson and I both enjoyed the tour. The food was good and Ivy, our guide, was very well informed about the market and the establishments we visited. It was a very good experience.
    Fantastic way to explore Pike Place and have a filling lunch!

    I recently moved to Seattle, and I decided to do one of these tours after a recommendation from a colleague. It truly was an amazing way to understand more about the food and history of Pike Place. We had samples from over 12 stops ranging from Turkish lentil soup to cherries from Yakima Valley in WA to delicious teas and desserts. The price may seem steep, but you're definitely getting your money's worth with this tour. Jade was an excellent guide--as a local pastry chef in the area, she has plenty of knowledge and recommendations. If you're vegan, vegetarian, or simply experimenting with plant-based, this is an excellent option. I highly recommend skipping lunch before you'll be full by the fifth or sixth stop. :)
    I would take this tour again!

    lizzieloryman, Jun 2023
    Jade was great, very informative about the the history and current day of Pike Place Market. It was a very relaxed tour all of the food was amazing, too hard to pick a favourite, it was a first trying the delicious vegan chowder, black truffle salt and chips with vegan cheese and salsa. I would definitely recommend this tour.
    Vegan Tour la Scrumptious!

    Insights and tips about each unique food spot that we visited. Visual history of the Pike Market Place. A very knowledgeable guide. Jade was awesome!
    Would do this tour again next time I am in town.
    Wendy_C, May 2023
    Jade was a great guide. She connected before the tour to inquire about dietary restrictions and to confirm the meeting location which was great. We visited twelve different stalls/restaurants. All were fabulous. We were surprised by the variety of foods offered, not all from vegetarian restaurants. We sampled sweet, savory, dried foods. We sampled Turkish, Mexican, Ethiopian foods. Jade gave us a great history of the Market beginning with its inception through contemporary renovations and philanthropic endeavors. Wow! Very impressive. You could repeat this you regularly and taste different foods from different stalls every time. This is not a set itinerary so can be enjoyed often. I will recommend to friends and colleagues in the future.
    Best Tour in Seattle!

    This tour was amazing! All the food was carefully selected and was the best food I’ve ever tasted! My favorite was the Truffle Queen.
    This was a very fun and...
    Anagha_B, Mar 2023
    This was a very fun and informative food tour! The tour guide, Will, made sure we all had a great time and got to learn about and eat from a wide variety of places. If I had explored the market by myself, I would definitely have missed a good amount of the spots I got to visit on the tour. However, my only complaint is that the tour wasn't 100% plant-based, as was promised. Despite some of the food being not completely vegan, I'm grateful that Will made sure to not make me feel left out by giving me other options. Overall, I loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone who's planning on visiting the market!
    Great Food, Great Tour Guide
    Dexter_W, Nov 2022
    Will was an amazing guide. Not only was it great plant based food, but great history. Will has a good relationship with the different establishments to make vegan alternatives, if they didn't already have vegan menu items. My absolute favorite was the vegan queso with nachos. Yum! And this is not a scam lol. I couldn't initally find the tour group and thought I got scammed. So this ended up being a running joke for the rest of the group. It was a really good time.
    Worth it if you are vege or vegan!
    Tessa_W, Sept 2022
    I wouldn’t have found any of these places in the market on my own. Good variety of savoury and sweets and lots of recommendations from our guide, Jade.

    Will was a great tour guide. He treated us to many delicious plant based tastes, but he also gave us a lot of good information about the area as we walked through the market. Highly recommend!
