Put on your walking shoes on Saturday, September 15, 2018, for an entertaining and delicious way to learn about Troy—its ups and downs, and the role food is playing in bringing this architectural gem back to life. You'll sip and sample some of New York’s classic flavors and sprinkle in history and culture to round out the day. The group will meet just past our first stop, 275 River Street, Troy, at 10 am. This Central Troy Historic Food Tour is a leisurely 3-hour, 1.5-mile walk with informative stops along the way. The tour ends at the Troy's Farmer's Market with time for you to explore and shop (if you wish) the 80+ vendors.

Psychedelicatessan—taste hand-rolled bagels and store-cured lox;
Whistling Kettle—sample 2 teas;
St. Paul's Episcopal Church—inside tour of the entire Tiffany-designed interior;

Brown's Brewery—2 different beer sips, paired with Buffalo Cauliflower;
