Experience several of Downtown Portland's notable eateries, from fine dining to food carts. We'll also take you through the Portland Farmers Market for a special behind-the-scenes peek. You'll get expanded tastings, a little time to explore, and discover why local chefs consider it to be the "heart" of Portland's food scene. Our stroll will weave through the Cultural District & we will check out a few famous landmarks along the way, en route to more delicious food and drink.

My wife and I received the Downtown & Farmer’s Market Tour as a gift. We had an amazing time! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the food, the vendors, and Portland in general...The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Do not eat before your tour! I have an awesome appetite and couldn’t finish everything, even though I came with an empty stomach. The value of the tour is really great when you consider you are getting 3 hours of entertainment plus plenty of food and beverage. Overall we thought the experience was amazing, we will definitely be trying the other Forktown tours in the future.
