Taste NY at the Western NY Welcome Center
Over the last decade, the Taste NY program has highlighted the quality, diversity, and economic impact of food and beverages grown, produced, or processed in New York State. These last ten years, the program has created new opportunities for producers, expanded retail locations, and forged partnerships statewide. Need a break while traveling to and from Niagara Falls or Buffalo? Stop in at the Western NY Welcome Center and learn all about this thrilling region. With a design inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, whose nearby Darwin Martin House Complex is a regional highlight, this center offers a full Taste NY market with counter service, a community room for meetings, a 90-foot mural of Niagara Falls, and tables and chairs for a bit of relaxation. The kids can play at the impressive outdoor Great Lakes shipwreck-themed playground. The center provides three electric car charging stations.
Our vendors must have food products or other agricultural products grown, produced, or processed in NYS in order for us to sell in our Taste NY store.
