Local Food Restaurant Tour

October 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Coastal Foodshed is thrilled to partner with 4 Downtown New Bedford Restaurants to bring the very first Local Food Tour of its kind to the city.

  • The goal of the tour is to bring awareness to the Local Food System and to open a dialogue within the community and especially with those interested in further supporting local food availability. With New Bedford’s growing tourism industry, especially in the Downtown area, we feel it is important to bring awareness to Local Food in order to explore creative ways in supporting our Local Food suppliers.  

Be a part of our inaugural tour and share your thoughts in the conversation with Chefs and Farmers to find out what it takes to get Local Food on your plate. 

This Pilot tour will serve as a baseline to grow from – and we want to include our closest friends in the conversation. With only 16 spaces available, we expect the tour to sell our quickly.  

Enjoy a night out eating locally sourced tastings paired with locally inspired beverages.  

We will meet and begin the tour at the Downtown New Bedford Farmers Market where you will learn a few tips for cooking local along with a tasting of what can be found at the market that day!  

From there, our Tour Guide will lead you on a short walk through Downtown, making 4 unique stops to taste and hear from the Chefs who are going the extra mile to support the many Local Food business owners in our area. Have an opportunity to ask questions and share your thoughts as the small group setting provides a unique experience for interacting. 

As a part of the tour package, you will be provided a complimentary local goodie bag valued at $25 which includes fresh produce, and a gift card to our farmers markets and farm stands. 

The details of the Food Tour are as follows. Please let us know if you have any questions.
