About us

Savor Seattle was founded in 2007 as the first food tour company within the Pike Place Market Community. For 13 years, Savor grew to become the premiere culinary walking tour company in Seattle. Sadly, in March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic forced the shut-down of tour operations. With the hope that Savor might continue to bring our guests amazing Seattle food experiences, we pivoted to curated food boxes sent to the customer’s home. While our business model evolved, this allowed us to maintain our mission and commitment to the community we love.

Today, Savor Seattle is operated by former tour guides and managers Heather Refvem and Matthew Bentley. With a new and expansive vision, Savor Seattle’s Tour Operations relaunched Spring of 2023. Our 25 years of combined experience in the tourism industry and our dedication as members of the Pike Place Market community has us feeling confident and excited to ask our guests to once again… #followthepinkumbrella


“As the ‘new kid on the block’ at Pike Place, having just moved in Nov 2019, we were super excited to be included in Savor Seattle boxes. The exposure with other well-known Pike Place brands has been such a boost for our business. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have many of our products featured in multiple boxes. We are also so excited to be featured in the Pride Box. What a pleasure to collaborate with such amazing people who also understand the trials and tribulations of owning and operating small businesses. Supporting local farms, farmers and ranchers has been one of our goals since the inception of Bonnie B’s Peppers. Thanks for the opportunity to make that goal a reality! It was the most delicious decision of my life!” — Dylan, Bonnie B’s Peppers


“Working with Savor has been a great experience for us, and our customers. As a young business in Seattle, the pandemic put a big dent into our plans and ability to grow. Savor puts together an excellent assortment of local products that supports local vendors and has made it easy to safely connect with each other through the pandemic. I am lucky to say we have been able to work with Savor Seattle since the beginning of their gift box program, and it has been a big part of survival and success since.” — Peter, Joe Chocolate Co.
