Meet your guide and a small group of 12 people or fewer in front of the Arthur Avenue entrance to the Arthur Avenue Retail Market. Begin your tour by walking through the stalls of the market alongside your guide, making a special stop to see what foods have just arrived from Italy.
Then, tour some of the family-run food shops in the neighborhood, many of which have remained in business for more than 100 years. Head next door to a pork shop, sample house-made ricotta at a cheese store, and taste white chocolate bread at a local bakery. Continue to a pastry shop, pasta shop, and deli for a sample of hand-pulled mozzarella.
Complete your tour back where you began at the Arthur Avenue Retail Market, within walking distance of the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Gardens.
