Description

The 15,200 square foot state-of-the-art Long Island Welcome Center includes a Taste NY Market to showcase a broad selection of fresh made breakfast and lunch items, including soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts using ingredients sourced from Long Island growers. It will also offer grab-and-go snacks and specialty local items for sale.

The Welcome Center will also be the home to an outdoor farmers’ market open on Saturdays and Sundays through the season, spotlighting Long Island farms.

Agriculture on Long Island is incredibly diverse with well over 100 different crops grown and produced. Its producers provide abundant, high quality commodities, such as vegetables and potatoes, fruits, poultry and livestock, nursery and floriculture products, seafood, and varieties of wine and grapes. According to the Long Island Farm Bureau, agri-businesses in the region employ well over 8,000 people, supporting Long Island’s largest industry—tourism, travel and hospitality.

Five I LOVE NEW YORK touchscreen information kiosks provide travelers with the opportunity to learn more about the Long Island tourism region. An interactive map provides suggested destinations based on the user’s interests, allowing them to browse regional attractions, from historical sites to local wineries, and create an itinerary, which they can take with them via email.

The Welcome Center is operated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County.
