ENJOY A FOOD TOUR IN A HISTORIC DISTRICT
Come on over on certain Saturdays, listed below, and join the "Taste History and Culinary Tours of Historic Palm Beach County." Visit restaurants, eateries, cafes and markets in historic districts, areas and buildings in either Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth or Lantana, and enjoy food sampling. Learn about food history, food culture facts and foodways.
You will be touring on a bus and walking four to six blocks for four hours, rain or shine, visiting at least two of fifteen eateries regularly on the tours, markets and urban farms. See and hear narrative information by a live guide on historic buildings, districts and landmarks located along the tour. Dietary restrictions cannot be accommodated but you may visit local home-grown markets, vegan restaurants, organic eateries, gourmet restaurants, soul food, visit an urban farm, and more. Some food tasting is standing only - no sitting, so wear comfortable shoes.
Cultural Arts venues include stops at the Lake Worth Art League Gallery and the Clay, Glass, Metal, Stone Gallery in the downtown Lake Worth arts district. Cost is $35 per person, less for groups of ten, all paid in advance. Tours being at 11 am so be there at 10:45 am. Tours start at the Boynton Beach Mall (Macy's - Outside at East Entrance), 801 N. Congress Avenue.
The Tour is run by the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History in Boynton Beach, a non-profit 501c3. Tours are held on the 2nd (Lake Worth), 3rd and 4th Saturdays (Delray Beach and Boynton Beach) of each month, year-round. The website is http://mlfhmuseum.org/culinaryfoodtours.html.
