While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations.

From bustling markets to quirky cafés, the Latvian capital is packed to the brim with authentic food stops – and we aim to discover them all (or as many as we can!) on this delicious Riga food tour. Set off from the Riga Central Market, a huge local marketplace housed within five old zeppelin hangars, a truly unique setting and something you don't see every day! Try your hand at haggling for fresh fruit, cheese, or berries, and taste some locally produced dairy products. This is the ideal place to witness everyday Latvian life.
Leave the market behind as we continue this Riga tour with a stroll around the wealth of cafés, bakeries, bars, and small grocery stores that are dotted around the city. Grab the chance to taste a range of seasonal Latvian food specialties: fresh cottage cheese with dill, beautifully cooked deer meat, sweet blueberry pie, creamy ice creams, locally brewed beer and, of course, Riga Balsam - an ultimate Riga experience. C'mon, tell us you're not drooling at the thought of all that delicious Riga food - because we are!
If your visit falls on the second or fourth Saturday of the month there will also be the chance to visit the Riga Slow Food Market on this Riga walking tour. Here, local farmers and craftspeople gather to sell their products and you can shop alongside locals for amazing fresh produce and a range of tasty treats. Be sure to ask your Riga guide for some local favourites!
No matter the time of year, or the day of the week, this Riga food tour is a delight for anyone interested in the flavours of Latvia, and is sure to leave you with a full belly and a smile on your face. What more could you ask for?
