Olana becomes first historic site to host Taste NY program

The Taste NY program has popped up at all sorts of venues -- Thruway rest stops, the State Fair, Saratoga Race Course, farmers markets, sporting venues, etc. -- as part of a major effort to promote the state's food and drink industries.

Now, the Olana State Historic Site has become the first such venue in the state to have a Taste NY storefront. The onetime home of Frederic Edwin Church, a major figure in the Hudson River school of landscape art, is showcasing small-food producers from its locality and other parts of the state.

Since Governor Andrew Cuomo started the Taste NY program in 2013 it has grown to now selling products from more than 1,100 producers across the state at 60 separate locations.

“There is such a large representation of the Hudson Valley here,” Rachel Tice, store manager for the Olana museum, told local media. “We have 28 producers and growing. I am building a foundation first, but I want to add more.”

Olana is located at 5720 Route 9G in Hudson. Phone: (518) 828-0135.
