Looking for some interesting eats at the 2017 Minnesota State Fair? Below you’ll find a roundup of the top 5. The fair runs from August 24 through September 4, 2017.

Sweet Martha’s Cookie Jar

Yes, you can probably bake about 20 dozen for the price of one bucket but what would be the fun in that? These small, soft, gooey cookies are a right of passage at the Minnesota State Fair, and they go pretty well with a large glass of milk. Which, coincidentally you can get in the same booth.

1919 Rootbeer

The Postiglione family has been pouring 1919 draft root beer, made at the August Schell Brewery in New Ulm for over three decades. Make sure you grab one outside the Garden and Underwood.

Lulu’s Public House

If you’re thinking about heading over to the fair in the morning, you’ve got to stop at Lulu’s Public House which is located in the West End of the Market. Here you can try what’s called a Breakfast Buddy Bowl. It’s a waffle bowl filled with eggs, syrup, cheese, bacon, hash browns, with a biscuit and gravy on top. Guess you better go on an empty stomach?

O’Gara’s

Ready to try some deep fried avocado? Sounds like some fatty goodness right there yes? If the plain ones aren’t quite good enough, you can always pair them with chipotle sauce for dipping. Stop by O’Garas which is on the south-west corner of Dan Patch Avenue.

Oodles of Noodles

There’s always that one person in the group that has some pretty strict dietary needs; gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian or heck maybe all three? There’s a perfect solution to this over at Oodles of Noodles in the Food Building. Their newest dish this year is red curry rice cooked in coconut milk with an onslaught of authentic produce.
