Boston Globe: Maine Foodie Tours

Earlier this week the Boston Globe published an article about food tourism which featured Maine Foodie Tours.

Maine Foodie Tours was created by Pamela Laskey after Portland was named “America’s foodiest small town” by Bon Appetit magazine four years ago. Clients can sample the city’s robust locavore culture by foot, bicycle, or trolley, and she recently added tours of Kennebunkport.

Her top demographic are clients 50 to 70 years old. Laskey said her older, more experienced travelers in particular appreciate being able to talk directly to the purveyors — the lobsterman, cheese monger, and brewer.
