For those who want an inside edge on navigating Seattle’s culinary stops—whether that means beating the line for a salumi platter or sampling a neighborhood’s best banh mi sandwiches—food tours are the way to go. Options abound in Seattle for various tastes and locations, from a chocolate-focused walking tour to a biking introduction to boardwalk treats. The experience can be as fulfilling as it is filling.

Eat Seattle

Think cooking class meets food tour. Eat Seattle’s two-hour, chef-led tours of Pike Place Market start with a shopping trip through the market and end with a cooking demonstration in the market’s Atrium Kitchen. Look for classes led by Emily Moore, one of Seattle’s first star chefs and a longtime culinary school instructor.

Its early-access tour of Pike Place Market showcases a unique side of the market, before the crowds come through.
