Did you know that although the area was originally residential, markets have existed in the district since the 1840s. People moved into tenements in the Meatpacking District in the 1820s to escape epidemics in what was then the main part of New York. In 1900, 250 slaughterhouses and packing plants filled the area; and by the 1930s, those houses produced the nation’s 3rd-largest volume of dressed meats. Five meatpacking companies still operate in the district. Boutiques and bars are more common than rump roasts these days, and the neighborhood continues to evolve almost daily.
Foods and activities on the tour include:
• Sandwich from Cappone's Salumeria or a slice of pizza from Filaga
• Biscuit and jam at Sarabeth’s
• Doughnuttery doughnut
• Little 'witch from Fat Witch Bakery
• Empanada (flavors include coconut curry chicken, blue crab, pancetta mac and cheese, and more!)
• How hot can you go?! Guided hot sauce tasting by a hot sauce "sommelier"
• Brief shopping adventure with introduction and tote bag at Artists & Fleas
• Beer or wine (additional cost)
