When you think of going to the Fair, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? FAIR FOOD: Corn dogs, BBQ, funnel cake, and Krispy Kreme burgers–where the burger bun IS a donut. Okay, okay, this may not be your jam, but did you know that we have healthy options as well?
Good news for you then, the California State Fair has got you covered with some more healthy options for you to grub on if you’re not interested in the traditional Fair treats.
First, you can grab some fresh fruit from our Friends of the Fair Farmer’s Market where you can enjoy local, fresh fruit including grapes, watermelon, pluots, peaches and nectarines. For the non-fruit eaters, the Farmer’s Market stand also has honey straws and almonds! The funds benefit the Friends of the California State Fair scholarship program, so you can enjoy a healthy, fresh option while supporting students’ higher education dreams. What a deal!
You can also check out the Friends of the Fair booth in the Exposition Building 2 at the Whale Tail exhibit. Grab a healthy snack and check out the rescued river otters, bald eagles, and raccoons.
Another option that may fulfill your desire for Fair food and healthy-ish food would be our three vendors: Grinders, The Sleek Greek, and Big Bubba’s BBQ. Big Bubbas offers a variety of kabob’s with meat and vegetables, Grinders has some giant tasty sandwiches, and The Sleek Greek has some savory gyros!
Now you can chow down on fair food without the guilt! We have something to offer everyone at the CA State Fair in the food category, and now you have the tools to find it. Head on over to the Google Play or App Store to download the CA State Fair for a full list of food vendors at the Fair.
