New York Food Systems

Sample an international buffet from New York City’s best food carts, trucks, markets, and manufacturers. Our Food Cart Tours and Public Market Tours  include generous tastings ranging from Korean barbecue to Moroccan olive oil, Bengali kati rolls to Belgian waffles. We also tour food manufacturing facilities, including the Wafels & Dinges Factory and the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Food Manufacturing Hub. Along the way, listen to the stories of hard-working food entrepreneurs, learn how the city’s vast food distribution system works, and understand the daily challenges of running a small food business in this bustling city. Food Cart Tours take place in Manhattan’s Midtown or the Financial District, and our Public Market Tours are offered at the Lower East Side’s Essex Market.
