Residents of the New Milford area flocked to the Village Green last week for the 10th annual A Taste of New Milford.

About 30 restaurants, caterers, bakers and other food providers served samples of their food at the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce event. Nearly 10 vineyards and breweries were represented and served samples of their beverages in the newly renovated United Bank Building at the corner of Main and Bank streets. The Blue Yodels and Friends provided entertainment at the bandstand.

Proceeds from Taste of New Milford benefit the Community Culinary School of Northwestern Connecticut, which is based in New Milford, and teaches training and job placement to people interested in the food service industry.
