The Next Stop for Columbus Food Adventures: Worthington
Already well known for its charm, architecture and storied history, the city of Worthington is also gaining quite a reputation in Columbus culinary circles. The folks at Columbus Food Adventures have taken note and recently added The Old Worthington Walking Tour to their wildly popular lineup. The guided tour, which joins the ranks of foodie destinations like the Short North, German Village and Grandview Avenue, will take place on Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. from May through October.
We recently caught up with Bethia Woolf, founder of Columbus Food Adventures, to chat about the newest tour. A long-time Columbus food blogger and contributor for Crave magazine, Woolf has always been interested in the Worthington food scene. “Worthington perfectly fits the criteria for our tours,” she said. “It’s a charming, walkable neighborhood, has a rich, interesting history and of course, great food."
If you’ve never experienced a Columbus Food Adventure tour, here’s the scoop:
- The Old Worthington Walking Tour will include food and beverage stops at a few local favorites, including the Worthington Farmers Market, House Wine, The Worthington Inn, La Chatelaine, Sassafras Bakery and The Whitney House. As a special bonus, guests will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Worthington’s favorite little print shop, Igloo Letterpress.
“From the amazing Farmers Market to the many popular restaurants and merchants, we’re excited to introduce visitors to all that Worthington has to offer and to encourage them to keep coming back,” Woolf said.
- Each tour lasts approximately 3 1/4 hours, with about a half mile of walking involved. Tours take place rain or shine, so dress appropriately
- The cost is $55 and includes pre-selected tastings at each stop, with more than enough food to fill your belly. Each tour is led by an experienced guide who shares a wealth of local knowledge, fun facts and history.
- Reservations must be made 24 hours in advance, and each tour can accommodate a maximum of 15 people. In certain cases, the tour may be able to accommodate specific dietary restrictions, so be sure to notify them of your needs when making a reservation.
