About Taste Frederick Food Tours

Mouth-watering food tastings are the foundation of the tour, but as long-time Frederick residents, we also possess our share of local knowledge. Besides sampling food from fantastic local restaurants and specialty food shops, our tour participants receive a hearty portion of the history, culture, architecture, entertainment and restaurant offerings that are available beyond just our tour stops. Our goal is to infuse everyone with the excitement and confidence to return and take advantage of the wide range of food and cultural options downtown Frederick has to offer.
