Taste NY is an initiative launched by Governor Cuomo in 2013 that highlights the quality, diversity and economic impact of New York’s food and beverage industries. Overseen by the Department of Agriculture and Markets, Taste NY has created opportunities for local producers to receive increased exposure of their products to consumers, restauranteurs, retailers, wholesalers and distributors. Whether it be at a Taste NY retail store, event, café or concession, it’s never been easier to find fresh, local food.
