Starting Our Oakland Food Tours

Started in 2014 as the Rockridge Food Tour, Local Food Adventures is brought to you by an area resident who wants to share the food and cultural urban village experience that only the East Bay has to offer!.

Giving Back to Our Community

And while you enjoy samples of our growing culinary scene, guests should know that their experience will also go to help our neighbors in need. Local Food Adventures will donate $1 from every ticket purchased to the Alameda Community Food Bank. Click here for more info.

A Perfect Activity for Groups

Local Food Adventures offers not only an opportunity for guests and vacationers to discover one of the Bay Area’s hidden neighborhood gems, but also for local residents to learn more about the history of the area in which they call home. In addition to public tours, Local Food Adventures also offers Private Group Tours and Gift Certificates which make the perfect present for an East Bay newbie, lifelong resident or visitor.

Discover Your Local Yummy!

Guests of Local Food Adventures have the opportunity to sample some of Oakland’s best foods as well as learn about the history, culture, architecture and happenings of our European-inspired oasis. Our goal is for everyone, both locals and guests, to be able to better enjoy one of the Bay Area’s best kept secrets.

Special Thanks

Local Food Adventures would like to extend a special thanks to Stephanie Shaterian of fLO Content, Mike Pierce of New West Pictures and Raz Meyers of Slice of Love Photography for our tour video and photos.
