Cherry City Food Tours

The best ways to experience food and history of Salem. You will be guided on a relaxed walking tour with some of the best food and drink that downtown Salem has to offer.

5 person minimum

Each tour requires a minimum of 5 people. If you and your group does not meet the minimum we can start a social media event, and you can keep choose to have it open to the public or keep it private between friends.

7 Day Lead Time

I need at least one week to make sure your requested day is able to take place. Basically each tour is one of a kind.


If your event does meets the 5 person minimum, then you and your guests will be sent a message that we are ready to accept payment for your ticket. You can pay with cash or card at the beginning of the tour. The tour will not begin until everyone involved has paid for a ticket. Payments will be made to Alfredo Ruiz Jr. (me, OregonFreddy)

Please fill out our form and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Cherry City Food Tours recently launched as Salem's newest food tour business.

Now, Salem diners and their guests can find new hidden gems downtown, chat with restaurant owners and get an inside look at the Cherry City culinary crowd.
