The Marietta Food Tours Story
The idea for Marietta Food Tours was born from our desire to taste cuisines from locally owned and operated restaurants during our travels. Our love for our town combined with wonderful experiences while on food tours during trips to destinations such as San Francisco, Chicago and Nassau, Bahamas inspired us to create Marietta’s first culinary and cultural walking food tour experience. As long time Marietta residents, we are delighted at the opportunity to impart a vast array of interesting facts about The Marietta Square’s rich history and architecture, as well as showcase its fine eating establishments.
The Marietta Food Tours experience takes participants on a veritable journey of flavors, all within the picturesque walking environment the square provides. You’ll get to savor everything from authentic Italian cuisine to traditional Aussie favorites, as well as a gourmet, in-house roasted coffee. Our excursions allow you the unique ability to explore the fantastic food offerings available in Marietta, all while gaining knowledge about its culture and surroundings so that tour members can expand their experience by returning to the square and engaging in the diverse community activities offered, such as local farmers’ and artists’ markets, high quality theatre productions, runners’ events, and outdoor concerts. Marietta Food Tours is a welcome addition, complimenting these community offerings and delving into Marietta’s history, culture and architecture, while simultaneously sampling the tempting culinary selections available on the lively square. Ultimately, our tours were created with the intention of introducing others to our flavorful Marietta Square, and to instill the excitement and confidence in our guests to return to the square and take advantage of its unique restaurants, shops and activities.
