Seattle food tours — edible adventures with kids

Everybody eats, but rarely do we get to know how our food is made. That what food tours around Seattle are all about. Visit local chocolate factories, creameries and roasteries (to name a few) where you can watch ingredients get melted, ground, mixed or mashed into some of our favorite foods. Watching the process is mesmerizing for children and adults alike, and the end product always tastes even better when you’ve seen what goes into creating it.

Whether you’re looking to kill a few minutes watching dumplings get folded before lunch, or you’re planning a day trip to a candy factory, our Seattle food tour suggestions provide edible family adventures and all the fun of Willy Wonka’s factory, without any of the Oompa Loompas whisking you away. Some of these stops offer formal food tours, while others give you the chance to press your face against the glass, inspect the machinery and see how food is made. And did we mention the free samples?
