What you'll learn in this food tours class:

Join us for a fun foodie adventure through Union Square, Somerville - a neighborhood like Brooklyn, NY that is bursting with culture, historical significance, and an exploding food scene!

Celebrating entrepreneurs of all kinds, there are lots of creative new concepts here and a brand new local market.

We will sample a diversity of foods from local favorites, ethnic restaurants, and hand-crafted specialty foods that are sure to wow.

Meet in the courtyard of Bloc Cafe MBTA: The easiest thing to do is take the MBTA to a close stop and then Uber or taxi ten minutes to Union Square. The closest MBTA stops are: the Red Line's Central Square or the Green Line's Lechmere station. You could also take an MBTA bus from Harvard or Davis Square MBTA stations. Parking: Our tours run 2 - 3 hours so it is easiest to take the train or Uber/Lyft to Union Square or park in a private lot instead of utilizing street meters. Meters usually run for 2 hours time limit in general but in some places are 3 hours. You may be able to leave the tour briefly to refill the meter if that's your best option. On Sundays, street parking is free. Public Parking is available in a three nearby lots — beside the Old Firehouse/SCAT building in the center of Union Square, on Washington Street behind Ricky’s Flower Market, at the corner of Prospect and Somerville Avenue.
