Founded by settlers from New England in 1803 (even prior to the establishment of the City of Columbus) Worthington boasts, among many other culinary gems, the largest farmer’s market in Central Ohio. As such, the history and charm of Old Worthington is perhaps matched only by the independent spirit of its many noteworthy restaurants and food purveyors.
Our tour will immerse you in the ambience and history of Worthington’s Historic District while providing plenty of opportunities to sample from the many fine eating establishments and food providers that call it home. Food and beverage stops include artisan purveyors at the farmer’s market, House Wine, The Worthington Inn, La Chatelaine, Sassafras Bakery, and The Whitney House. There will also be a short bonus stop to take a peek behind the scenes at Igloo Letterpress.
