Salem native and Beverly resident Amy Pearson, manager of Turtle Alley on the Essex Street pedestrian mall, has nothing but praise for Salem Food Tours, which she said has increased her business. Those who take the food tour on Saturday usually come by on Sunday to buy something they sampled the day before.
The tours have proved so successful that Scalia plans to expand the tours to the North Shore for excursions of up to 30 people visiting local farms, wineries and eateries.
Aptly, she said, her business is “growing organically.”
