Troy Main Street, Inc. presents the 2013 Taste of Troy on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The event is held annually in downtown Troy to showcase local restaurants in the picturesque town square.
Visitors can sample the culinary delights of fourteen hometown restaurants, listen to live music, shop at the Downtown Farmers Market, participate in beer and wine tastings, and visit dozens of downtown shops.
Expect to taste a wide range of food from a variety of independent restaurants including Cajun, Italian, Mexican, classic American fare, locally grown and raised, and more. New participants in this year’s Taste of Troy are the recently-opened Pinkies Up Tea House, Country Bulk Barn, Mojo’s Bar & Grill, Olive Oasis, and the Cakery.
“Tastes” for sale include a diverse array of menu items featuring up to three different offerings from each participating restaurant.
To satisfy a hunger for entertainment, several musical performances are scheduled for Prouty Plaza throughout the day. Slated to perform are Rum River Blend, Stephen Orban, Larry Lyons, and Megan Osman.
“Troy is unmatched in the quality and quantity of independent restaurants for a city of its size”, notes Troy Main Street Director Karin Manovich. “The Taste of Troy provides an opportunity for people to sample signature dishes from a wide variety of restaurants while enjoying live music.”
Two downtown establishments, La Piazza and The Caroline, will offer wine and beer tastings on their respective outdoor patios. The Downtown Troy Farmers Market will extend its hours until 2:00PM.
