Food is pretty much the reason why I agree to anything. If there's food, I'm there. That's why the Taste of Syracuse is one of my favorite events to attend yearly. I swear, your stomach will thank you later.

Going on June 2nd and 3rd from 11 am to 11 pm, the event features a ton of vendors who bring several of their menu items to showcase. They have things that you can get at regular prices, but the highlight to a lot of people are the $1 samples (for obvious reasons.) They have everything from Italian food, to comfort food, to desserts and drinks!

Below is a list of vendors and menu items for sale. This is subject to change, as some vendors make decisions last minute to switch up what menu items they serve - some haven't even made a choice of what to serve.

My mouth is watering as I type this. I am in desperate need of these things ASAP. Who wants to go with me?
