Bring the kids and explore the city through its restaurants, farmers markets and many cultural tastes during these popular events that double as little lessons

Content brought to you by Excellent Schools Detroit

Whether you prefer exploring by foot, bus, car or bike, Delish Detroit – foodie fun offered by Feet on the Street Tours provides a unique opportunity to get to know your city in a whole new way. Experiences range from informal tastings and food crawls to more upscale progressive dining tours.

Delish Detroit

One standout is the Come Hungry, Leave Happy tour. In this popular offering, you'll taste your way through Detroit's historic Eastern Market district while meeting and learning from local vendors.

It's a great choice for parents eager to introduce kids to new foods and healthier eating. Kids sample everything from pickles and pizza to ethnic picks like hummus and grape leaves, while getting a glimpse of local businesses and the people behind them.

Delish Detroit also ventures into Midtown, Corktown and other neighborhoods for a better look at the cuisines and cultures that make up Detroit's food economy. In Mexicantown, for example, you'll visit Honey Bee Market and the E&L Supermercado to see and taste unusual fruits and vegetables, note the different cuts of meat and smell new spices. Kids are welcome on these tours.

Linda Yellin, FOTST founder, notes that the Eastern Market option is a great educational experience. "The tour helps kids understand a little bit more about where their food comes from and how to still have really wonderful-tasting things but to expand their knowledge beyond the pre-packaged and the fried."
