Today at noontime, local and state officials gathered at Olana for a ribbon cutting at the state's newest Taste NY location: the Olana Visitor Center and Museum Store, operated by The Olana Partnership.
Richard Ball, Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets, was on hand to cut the ribbon, as well as Daniel Mackay, Deputy Commissioner for Historic Preservation, still in his first week on the job, and other representatives of the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Some of the thirty approved Taste NY vendors were present providing samples of their wares.
There are sixty-five Taste NY locations throughout the state. Ten of them are in state parks, but Olana is the first state historic site to become a Taste NY site.
