YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Fairgoers at the Yorktown Grange Fair will get to try TasteNY food vendors from Sept. 10-13 at the Grange Fairgrounds.
“We’re excited to welcome the TasteNY program to the Grange Fair this year,” said Josh Davies, Grange Fair president. “This state-wide program, focusing primarily on small, local NY State vendors, ties in nicely with the theme of this year’s Fair: 'A Taste of the Farm,' and with the Grange Fair’s tradition for the past 90 years of showcasing our agricultural heritage.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo launched TasteNY in 2013 to promote the state's food and beverage industries at large public events. Vendors in the TasteNY tent include the following:
- The Bee Hive Farmstand, Modena, N.Y. ( www.thebeehivefarmstand.com ), honey and maple syrup products such as candy, jelly, BBQ sauce, skin creams, lotions and soap.
