Local Roots Food Tours: Origins of Sacramento Food Tour

The Origins of Sacramento Walking Food and Cultural Tour is our newest addition.  This tour explores the very beginnings of Sacramento,  from Sutter’s colony Nueva Helvecia to the Fabulous Forties, with tastings of the best dishes the immigrants brought with them.  You’ll learn about how the many diverse groups forged our great city and created its agricultural dominance.

Participants enjoy a 3  hour, 2.5 mile flat walking route past historical national landmarks, gorgeous mission style churches and famed architecture throughout period neighborhoods.  Liberally sprinkled among these sites are ethnic eateries that echo the region’s diversity.  Come taste Sacramento’s amazing authentic foods hailing from far flung lands such as Spain, Czechoslovakia, Turkey, and China’s Szechuan province.

Our Origins of Sacramento Food Tour finds us meandering through two very historical but popular neighborhoods; Midtown’s Sutter District and East Sacramento’s Fabulous Forties.  Stroll under tree-lined streets while you explore hidden gem eateries.  Meet the talented and passionate chefs while sampling their creations….a foodie’s dream come true!  Local Roots Food Tours limits each group to 16 individuals to keep the experience small and intimate; each tour is narrated by our trained guides.  Special dietary needs can be met with prior notice.  Private group tours are available by reservation.

  • Grilled Polenta Triangle w/ fresh basil marinara sauce
