Description: Local Roots Food Tours offers food and farm adventures throughout...
Local Roots Food Tours offers food and farm adventures throughout Sacramento and its beautiful valley region. We offer 3 different walking food and cultural tours in Sacramento. Going beyond the big city - our other walking food tour can be found in picturesque Murphys,CA. Murphys Food & Wine Tour explores the Queen of the Sierra - a wonderful mining town with 8 delicious stops including food and wine. Ranked #1 Tour in Sacramento by Trip Advisor. Each tour offers a large variety of tastings (10+), while visiting 6-10 different specialty food shops, artisans, and neighborhood restaurants. All of our tours are offered year-round, last between 3.5 to 4 hours and range between $42 - $70, depending on the tour. The tours focus on F.L.O.S.S. (fresh, local, organic, seasonal, and sustainable) foods and beverages. Enough food is served on each tour that most guests consider it a meal. Savor, learn, explore and connect to some amazing communities and their culinary dishes.

A walking tour in Murphy's led by Tanya was delightful! Tanya had a story to share at every stop. Three and half hours of sipping beer and wine as well as eating tasty food at Alchemy, Murphy's Hotel and DOKE. Sushi in the park paired with wine from Hovey's tasting room was a surprising treat. Marisolio Tasting Bar included balsamic... More

I've lived in Sacramento for 17 years and still learned a great deal about the city, it's art and it's culinary world on this tour. Our guide, Cearra was personable, knowledgeable and very informative about the stops on our tour as well as some of her other personal favorite (and not so favorite) local restaurants. I'm glad we walked a... More

Small group guided by Lawrence, food was fantastic, My favorite was Dates stuffed with goat cheese, also the Carnitas Taco and the taste of infused Tequila. I stayed after and had Fireball Infused Tequilla, which was wonderful. The walk was flat, a little over 2 miles, easy walking , but stopped every 10-15 minutes to eat or drink something. I... More
