The Taste NY initiative was created in 2013. The program, overseen by the Department of Agriculture and Markets, helps local producers to showcase their goods at venues throughout the state and at large public events.
Taste NY’s food and beverage businesses also support the State’s farmers by using New York grown and produced ingredients in their products.
New York products sold under Taste NY branding are available in more than 70 locations throughout the State as well as the New York State Office of Trade and Tourism in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
