Located near the fair’s main entrance, the operation, run by area youth, resembles a farmers market and serves as another venue to sell New York products, Pezzolesi said.

“A million people go through the gates, so this is an opportune time to educate them on the wide variety of products grown in the state,” he said.

Pezzolesi said the fair, scheduled for Aug. 25 to Sept. 5 in Syracuse, N.Y., has increased its emphasis on Pride of New York programs in recent years.
