Hamline UMC Dining Hall's ham loaf
Old school church dining hall dining at its finest--a little greasy, but served with love and affection (and a somewhat sweetish sauce on top).
Sweet Martha's chocolate chip cookies
Especially when you're able to get a cup of malted milk (I prefer vanilla) to dip them in; what a treat!
Italian ice cream--and with plenty of interesting flavours to try, even in a large dish!
Battered cheese curds
Just because--need I say more?
Jen's Four Favorite Fair Foods by Jennifer Ajsenberg
This is just my standard, classic, favorite fair food! I can't get enough of them each year. The batter is crisp, moist, and delicious.
I love these greasy, yummy treats! They are crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside.
Chocolate Strawberry Malt
I always visit the Empire Commons dairy counter to check out the butter sculptures while enjoying a chocolate strawberry malt---I order chocolate at register and when I go to the counter ask them to mix with strawberry. YUM!
Deep Fried Pickles
Another must for me while visiting the food building! I don't get these anywhere else so this is always a treat for me. I like the regular deep fried pickle chips with ranch to dip in.

Bird Show from the Raptor Center
It's wonderful to see the strength of these birds in the show. You get to learn a lot about these birds and the wonders of their strength.
The Talent Shows on the Free Stage
When you need a few minutes of down time have a seat in the shade and listen to some wonderful new talent on the free stage near the main entrance
Each of the main local stations have a spot at the fair and do their daily broadcasts there for the duration of the fair. I like to get there early and watch the show. Sometimes they also sample some of the new foods and share with the audience!
This is a fun way to see the fair from above. You can buy one way tickets or round trip it's always neat to see the things you haven't visited yet and plan where to go to next.
