Sunday afternoon, some of Marco’s fine restaurants turned into sidewalk food vendors for the day, bringing a sampling of their wares out for the Taste of Marco. With sunlight filtered by a parade of puffy clouds, the temperature was a balmy 82 degrees, making a perfect day for strolling the Esplanade, trying the various food offerings, plus a little liquid refreshment, and listening to some live music.
The Taste of Marco benefits the Greater Marco Family YMCA, and presumably benefits participating eateries as well, giving customers an easy way to try their food.
