What you'll learn in this food tours class:

Join us for a fun foodie adventure through Union Square, Somerville - a neighborhood like Brooklyn, NY that is bursting with culture, historical significance, and an exploding food scene! Home of the infamous Fluff Festival because marshmallow fluff was invented here, the quirky Union Square celebrates its diversity with many community events and festivals.

Celebrating entrepreneurs of all kinds, there are lots of creative new concepts here and a brand new local market. This historical area is home to the raising of the first American flag in 1776, allegedly by George Washington himself. We will sample a diversity of foods from local favorites, ethnic restaurants, and hand-crafted specialty foods that are sure to wow. 

This tour is suitable to all ages, but there many be a chance or two to try some alcohol from some special local bars, so please specify your preference upon booking. Vegetarian-friendly.

Meet in the courtyard of Bloc Cafe MBTA: The easiest thing to do is take the MBTA to a close stop and then Uber or taxi ten minutes to Union Square. The closest MBTA stops are: the Red Line's Central Square or the Green Line's Lechmere station. You could also take an MBTA bus from Harvard or Davis Square MBTA stations. Parking: Our tours run 2 - 3 hours so it is easiest to take the train or Uber/Lyft to Union Square or park in a private lot instead of utilizing street meters. Meters usually run for 2 hours time limit in general but in some places are 3 hours. You may be able to leave the tour briefly to refill the meter if that's your best option. On Sundays, street parking is free. Public Parking is available in a three nearby lots — beside the Old Firehouse/SCAT building in the center of Union Square, on Washington Street behind Ricky’s Flower Market, at the corner of Prospect and Somerville Avenue.
