Meet your food-loving guide in front of Vigo’s Marine Station in the late morning, and set off on a stroll through the historic port district to a local market. See the interplay of old and new as cobblestone streets unfold onto this modern urban marketplace where stalls are stocked with a vibrant array of produce, meats, and the fresh seafood supplied by local fishermen. It's a great place to explore the raw ingredients used in typical Galician cooking.
After exploring the market, stop by a quaint bar near the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Vigo to sample Ribeiro white and Mencia red wine served in typical tazas (ceramic bowls used for drinking), paired with Galician cheese and spider crab pate.
Then, follow along the streets of the city's port district. Stop here to sample the catch of the day, commonly mussels and shellfish, and sample Albariño white wine from the D.O. Rias Baixas.
Finally, enjoy a sweet conclusion to your Vigo food tour as you take a seat in a quaint cafe to taste the traditional Tarta de Santiago almond cake accompanied by a coffee or tea. Your tour concludes here.
