Taste NY

Cornell Cooperative Extension Broome County in partnership with The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce operates the Taste NY store at The Southern Tier Welcome Center on 81 N as you enter NY from PA.

A second store is open on our campus at 840 Upper Front Street. The store has a rotating selection of New York local products - emphasizing and supporting NYS agriculture and small businesses. It is one of 11 Taste NY stores across the state located inside Welcome Centers across NYS!

ABOUT: Taste NY is an initiative launched by Governor Cuomo in 2013 to promote New York’s food and beverage industries. It is overseen by the Department of Agriculture and Markets and has created opportunities for local producers to showcase their goods at large public events, such as the Great New York State Fair. The program has also opened stores at Thruway rest stops along the state’s highways and in transportation hubs, enabling travelers to buy New York State’s homegrown and homemade products.
