This year's Great New York State Fair is going to include an all-new Taste NY Market inside the popular horticulture building.

Visitors to the new market will be able to sample and buy everything New York, from artisan cheeses and gourmet nuts, to local wines, craft beer, spirits and more.

The market will offer samples from all 76 participating vendors, and you will have the opportunity to speak with the people behind the products they make and sell.

If you enjoy the products after sampling, you will be able to buy more right there from the vendor who produces them.

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 found at the Great New York State Fair website.

The Taste NY Market is part of a $50 million plan form Governor Cuomo to improve the New York State Fair experience.

“The Great State Fair is one of this region’s greatest attractions, and the transformation of the fairgrounds has restored its status as one of the nation’s top state fairs,” Governor Cuomo said, “With the addition of this new Taste NY Market to the other attractions at the Horticulture Building, it’s now easier and more convenient than ever for visitors to enjoy the very best New York has to offer.

The Taste NY Wine, Cheese, and Beer Seminars will also return to the Horticulture Building. Representatives from local wineries, breweries and distilleries will share their knowledge about grapes, hops, and how to pair various wine, beer and spirits with food to maximize taste. Because of their popularity, additional seminars have been added this year to accommodate even more guests.
