“From salt potatoes to spiedies, to Utica Greens, craft beer, cider, wine, spirits, and so much more, our state is known for producing wonderful food and beverage options," said Interim State Fair Director Sean Hennesey. "Taste NY provides opportunities for farmers, and food and craft beverage producers to showcase their products, and introduce fairgoers to new flavors and favorites.”

Featured vendors sampling products at the Taste NY Marketplace will change daily throughout the Fair’s 13-day run.

Got Milk

Not only is the .25 cent milk back at the NYS Fair this year but so is the strawberry. Cold white and chocolate milk will be on tap every day during the Fair, except for the last three days. That’s when white milk will be swapped out for strawberry milk.

Strawberry Milk was served during the 2021 Fair after a lengthy hiatus and will be back by popular demand for 2022. Strawberry Milk will be poured starting Saturday, September 3 through Labor Day, Monday, September 5.

“The New York State Milk Bar continues to be one of the most affordable food finds at the Great New York State Fair. A family of four – or a group of four friends - can enjoy four glasses for just $1. How can you beat that?” said Hennessey. “And, thanks to the important work of our friends at Cornell Cooperative Extension, when fairgoers enjoy cups of milk, they’re also supporting future farmers and food industry leaders.”

The New York State Fair runs from Wednesday, August 24 through Monday, September 5.
