The all-new Taste NY Market at The Great New York State Fair was announced Aug. 4 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The market is part
of the governor’s $50 million plan to transform the fairgrounds and improve the
experience for visitors.
Now located inside the landmark Horticulture Building,
guests of the Taste NY Market will have the opportunity to enjoy everything New
York, from artisan cheeses and gourmet nuts, to local wines, craft beers,
spirits and more.
Visitors to the Taste NY Market
will have the chance to try free samples of food and beverages from all 76
participating New York vendors and to meet the people behind those products. If
you like what you try, you’ll also have the opportunity to buy it on-site
directly from the vendor.
For the first time this year, the operators of the
Taste NY store at the Broome Gateway Travel and Tourism Center will also
showcase and sell an array of products from their store, including: Bjorn
Popcorn, Mini Honey Bears, Emmy’s Macaroons, Field Trip Beef Jerky, Saratoga
Crackers and many others.
The vendors featured at the Taste
NY Market will rotate daily, during all twelve days of the Fair. A complete
list of participating vendors and a schedule of the vendor rotation can be
