The annual Taste of Troy offers visitors not only a sampling of foods from local restaurants, but also a chance to test the flavor of downtown’s offerings.
The 14th edition of the Taste of Troy returns Saturday, Sept. 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. downtown.
Event organizers believe they have a good recipe and made no major changes this year, said Andi Trzeciak, interim executive director of the Troy Main Street downtown organization. The downtown setting helps make The Taste of Troy unique, she said.
“I think it is so popular because people can come to our beautiful downtown, be outside and have smaller-sized portions from several of our locally owned restaurants instead of one big meal from one restaurant,” Trzeciak said.
The event will feature a variety of foods from 13 independent restaurants in the downtown and beyond; wine tastings at LaPiazza and beer tastings at The Caroline outdoor patios; live music; and shopping at downtown’s businesses.
New participating restaurants are Basil’s on Market, Brittney’s Cakes and Little York Tavern.
The weekly downtown Farmers Market will extend its hours until 2 p.m. to accommodate the visitors.
Admission is free with tickets for food “tastes” sold for $1 each. The tastes are priced at from one and three tickets.
Among the items on The Taste of Troy menu are bread pudding (Bakehouse Breads), Rosie’s meatballs (Basils), 5 Alarm chili (Dunaways), Monte Cristo ham (Mojo’s); Iced mochas (Winans), Chimichangas chicken and Mexican rice (LaFiesta); assorted flavors cake bombs (The Cakery), Carmel apple cupcake (Brittney’s Cakes) and pepperoni pizza (Al’s Pizza).
Entertainment on Prouty Plaza will be by A Sweet Sound, Megan Osman, Colin Richards and Southbound.
