The tasty items on the A to Z Foodie Trail are bursting with local favorites unique to South Central Iowa. Starting early 2018 this edible trail will give hungry visitors something to do when they come to the Pella area.
The Foodie Trail was created to give visitors, or even locals, more of an insight into the variety of cultures and tastes that the Marion and Mahaska counties have to offer. On this trail you’ll taste many different kinds of things, including award winning foods and beverages, varying from Bigfoot tenderloins to genuine Pella Bologna. You will also get to try many kinds of wine and coffee at several locations.
Brochures will be given out in every A to Z included on the trail. Included in the brochure is a map of the area and information on the restaurants in each participating town. To get involved in the trail, take a stop at one of the locations listed on the back of the brochure, and take your photo with the letter of the alphabet and your featured food item. There will be letters to use at each stop. Then post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #atozfoodietrail.
The A to Z Foodie Trail is listed as the #4 New Things to Do in 2018 on the Travel Iowa website. To see more of the new things in 2018 visit the Travel Iowa website.
