    What to Expect
    You can expect good food and good fun. The Market Street Food Tour takes you through some of Frederick, Maryland’s historic and cultural gems by way of six delicious tastings from local restaurants and specialty food shops. Depending on the resturant availability you will see: Brewer's Alley, Pretzel & Pizza Creations, The Wine Kitchen, North Market Pop Shop, Firestone's Market, or Zoe's Chocolate Co. You’ll taste local favorites including Mediterranean-inspired artisan chocolates, handmade calzones, nostalgic sodas, locally brewed beer inspired by colonial Maryland and more!. You’ll also learn how these local establishments came to be, who owns them and a few fun and interesting stories along the way. All of the food (and beverages) sampled on the tour are included in the price of your ticket and for most, are enough for a satisfying lunch.

    You’ll also enjoy a few hearty tastes of the historical, cultural and architectural components that make up the downtown neighborhood. You’ll catch glimpses of the city’s iconic church spires, learn how a flooded drainage ditch became an award winning park, and hear some fascinating tales about some of downtown Frederick’s sites and famous residents. The Taste Frederick Market Street Food Tour is full of food, facts and fun!
