About
What makes this experience stand apart from others is the benefit of having a chef by your side. As someone who shops daily in the markets, I have the expertise and experience to properly explain the importance of seasonal and regional cuisine, traditional recipes, and the island's most treasured artisanal products. Our interactions with trusted purveyors are enjoyable because the people we work with and choose to support are kind, knowledgable, and reliable. Personal connections are very important here in Sicily. Respect for the people, culture, and land are our utmost priorities.

Fantastic Palermo Market Tour!
Mar 2019
I was in Sicily on a photography assignment and thought it would be helpful to have Linda show me around the markets in Palermo. Even though I have been to Palermo before and was familiar with some of the markets, going with Linda gave me a better and deeper understanding of the markets and the people. Plus she knew the best producers and places to get a bite to eat. It was an invaluable experience and one that I will always do again and again if I have the opportunity.

Warm hospitality in beautiful Palermo
Oct 2019
I recently took my family visiting from the states on a tour with Linda and they were so impressed. Her love for Sicily is contagious, and she's truly a local - all the vendors know and love her and we tried lots of incredible veggies and delicacies like creamy ricotta cheese. She was very knowledgable when it came to my family's questions and inspired them to try Sicilian recipes once they got back home. She also gave us tips for great restaurants in the neighborhood once the tour was over. I'd definitely recommend her market tour!

Best food tours in Sicily!
Nov 2019 • Couples
If you’re going to Sicily then you have to go on a tour with Linda! She’s not just a wealth of knowledge but also just great to be around. Going on the market tour and having lunch at her apartment was one of the highlights of our trip. She has great relationships with vendors so you really get the best products and experience. Having lunch in her bright and airy apartment was amazing! She made delicious pasta, seasonal cauliflower with mint, the most delicate fried fish, and of course served the best local wine. If you love food and wine Linda is the person to meet. She has such great tips and is also just so fun to be around! We can’t wait to go on one of her sailing charters!! Thank you Linda!!!
