Whether it’s a brunch-time stroll through Cape May‘s seafood specialists and authentic international eateries or a movable feast of Somerville’s international cuisine, New Jersey food lovers and visitors can experience it all through the New Jersey Food Tour Trail, a collaboration of food tours that operate in various regions throughout the state.

Food tours in New Jersey were paused due to the pandemic, but traveling foodies can now book one of seven women-led food tours from Newark to Haddonfield, from Cape May to Morristown. The partnership of tours was developed for tourists and locals alike to “eat their way” throughout New Jersey.
