Highlights
    What to Expect
    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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed walking around this neighbourhood sampling all of the yummy food! We sampled cheeses, oysters, sausages, cookies, cannoli and pizza. All was yummy! We also heard how the area has changed. Brian was very knowledgeable and a great guide.

    I loved this tour a lot and my guide Jillian was amazing. We had a lot of fun and she fed me until I almost burst. No complaints there. She also imparted some great information about the area and the food that we ate.

    Beautiful day with Gracie, a Guide that knew the shop keepers like they were family. Easy walk in a community with great warmth and hospitality. Lots of food. Bring a small shopping bag or backpack. You will need it.
