“Fun Food Tour”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Had a great time touring some local ethnic food markets/groceries yesterday. Well organized and led by knowledgeable and entertaining host, Sheila Campbell. Learned about new foods and more about ethnic cuisine of some of my favorite cultures. Customers and staff at local markets friendly and helpful and made some purchases at lower prices than I find at more traditional food markets. Learned some great places to find unusual ingredients for interesting recipes. Looking forward to trying a restaurant tour. Tour could be great for families, couples, businesses or solo. You will meet interesting people on the tour or can book one for a work related group as well.

“Global Groceries”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

By all means, take this tour to find the little gems in Columbus-- ethnic markets. Ms. Campbell, your tour docent, shares an infectious enthusiasm and professional dietary knowledge about food and health. If you're tired of hamburgers, you should open your mind to other options for shopping (with surprisingly low prices), and food prep via the markets on the tour. Unfamiliar vegetables and fruit were de-mystified. Not only that, Sheila also prepares some light bites representative of the markets you visit. There is time built in to shop, if you wish, and time to ask questions. And the ride from place to place is very comfortable. It's fun, and you also get to meet new people!
