Taste NY, Farmers' Market Open at Long Island Welcome Center

From Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office:

The grand opening of the brand new Long Island Welcome Center in Dix Hills was held Oct. 20.

The 15,200 square foot state-of-the-art Welcome Center includes a Taste NY Market — promoting some of New York’s best locally-made and produced food and beverage products – a farmers’ market and an interactive I LOVE NEW YORK experience for Long Island visitors to learn about the region’s history and tourism destinations. 

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul marked the occasion with a ribbon cutting at the new facility.
The Welcome Center is located off the Long Island Expressway at Exit 51-52 Eastbound.
The Taste NY Market will showcase a broad selection of fresh made breakfast and lunch items, including soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts using ingredients sourced from Long Island growers.

It will also offer grab-and-go snacks and specialty local items for sale, providing an opportunity for local producers to market their products.

In addition to the Taste NY Market, the Welcome Center will be the home to an outdoor farmers’ market open on Saturdays and Sundays through the season that will provide locally-grown and produced foods to visitors, spotlighting Long Island farms and encouraging agritourism throughout the region.
