Located at the historic Todd Hill Service Station on the Taconic State Parkway one mile south of Route 55, the Taste NY Market is a destination where motorists can stop for affordable food and beverages, and where commuters and local residents can purchase healthy ingredients for home cooked meals. It provides a showcase for local farms to highlight selected products, as CCEDC is working with local farmers to encourage new business growth throughout the area, sourcing products for the Market from New York farms, restaurants and small businesses.
Inside the year-round market, locally produced products include milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, juice, ice cream, pastries, granola, and apple cider. Pantry items include maple syrup, honey, jam, fruit sauces, pickles, salsa and tomato sauce. Frozen products include farm-raised beef, lamb, pork and poultry items. Artisanal inventory changes periodically.
Outside, seasonally, a Farmers’ Market will open Friday and Sunday afternoons, June through October, to provide additional delicious fresh produce and a variety of other farm products.
The Market is operated by Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County through a grant from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. The state’s Taste NY program is opening up new markets for local farmers, beverage producers and other merchants.
