Chef's Farm-to-Table Challenge and Walking Tour in Charleston
From US$75.00
Catch a glimpse into Charleston’s burgeoning farm-to-table food scene on this 2.5-hour culinary and historical tour. Shop at the Charleston Farmers Market alongside a chef, who will create a 5-course brunch out of the ingredients you purchase while you take a 45-minute guided walking tour of the city. Conclude your tour at a restaurant, where you will share the chef’s meal with your group of 16 people or fewer.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and a featured chef at the corner of Meeting and John Streets near the Charleston Visitor Center at 9:30 a.m. Head to the Charleston Farmers Market at Marion Square to pick out fresh ingredients alongside your chef and see where the locals hang out on Saturday mornings.
Then, take a 45-minute walking tour of downtown with your guide, who will share history and legends of Charleston’s famous historic quarter along the way. Meanwhile, the chef will prepare a multi-course meal with the ingredients from the market.
After the walking tour, rejoin your chef at a downtown restaurant and enjoy your 5-course farm-to-table brunch. Complete your meal at noon within easy walking distance of Charleston’s shopping and historic attractions.
Please note: This tour is only available on Saturdays between mid-April and mid-December.

Unfortunately, this experience was underwhelming for two Midwesterners - although it may just have been an off day. Guide Hoon was pleasant, but somewhat aimless and self indulgent. It was also hard to hear him amidst the 16 tour participants and the activity of the...More

I would do it again!

This was a fun tour, focusing on the fresh food available in Charleston. It was different from a historic tour but Houn, our guide, was charming and knew so much about the local history, having grown up in Charleston. The Farmers' Market tour was a...More

This tour was a great combination of food shopping, walking, and eating. We started by visiting the farmers market, where we were able to pick ingredients we wanted the chef to use in his recipes for our lunch. We also had time to explore the...More
