The tour guide was good. She was very nice and took good care of us. However, the amount of food we had was kind of disappointing. For the price we paid, we expected more food during the tour. We all (family and relatives) ended up having to have an early dinner that day. But if someone likes tour more than... More

The Farmer's market tour is great to learn about the market. The samples were mostly great, with a couple of exceptions (Brazilian and fruit stand). I thought our group was a bit large and we had to wait around for some people at the various stops. One of these was Dylan's candy shop, where I think we went to kill... More

What an excellent way to experience Farmers Market. Our tour guide Andrew was knowledgable and keep us entertained. Food was excellent with a variety of foods to taste. Accommodated vegetarians and did not make us feel unwelcome. Bring your appetitive because you will need it. If you are from LA or visiting make sure to take this tour.

We went on the farmers market tour with our extended family and everyone from age 15 to 76 loved it! It was interesting and tasty and fun for all. We had almost a full meal after all our tastes. Diane, our guide, was so nice and made us feel like we were part of her farmers market family!

My entire family (even my 2 teenage boys) loved it . Our tour guide, Andrew, was extremely knowledgeable as well as very very funny. The food was delicious. Knowing the history of the Farmers Market made it much more enjoyable. After the tour, my sister & I purchased some meat & produce as well as treated ourselves to a glass... More

I was amazed by the Melting Pot Food Tour to the Farmers Market in Los Angeles! Even though I live in that area and go constantly to the farmers Market, I really didn't know a lot about the history of that place and all the amazing food they have there. Awesome experience and the tour host, Lisa Scalia was super... More

The tour was amazing. Diane was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable - about the food (since she's a chef herself) and about the farmer's market history & people (since she grew up going to the market and continues to frequent it very regularly). The food was delicious, and it was just a wonderful experience.

This was such a great tour. I have visited and worked in Pasadena but have never experienced these local hot spots. Can't wait to do another Los Angeles tour with Melting Pot Tours. You guys are the best!
