Cows are basically the best animals on the planet, and if you ask a 4-Her nicely, you can probably even pet one! This is also #1 because I'll be bringing my heifer up to State this year, so come see me! (and you might even get to pet her ;] )
A Bucket of Sweet Martha's with All You Can Drink Milk
It's the perfect combination, and it's totally worth the wait! You'll need that milk and some friends to finish off all those cookies.
Theres something for everyone here! You could go to Ireland, China, and Mexico all in 45 minutes.
Honey Ice Cream
Where else would you get honey ice cream? There's also plenty of benches to sit and eat, or you can walk around and see all the cool stuff in the Horticulture building.

deep fried pizza
my first reaction to this was ahhh sick but i tried it and the gooey flavors of the pizza's cheese and sause combined with the fatty flavors of the friedness is wonderful!
it is best to eat this at the end of you trip to the mn state fair just because it is the perfect end to summer and the perfect beginning of autumn. the butter drips down you chin and onto your shirt but you don’t care because well its magical (the corn is)
cheese curds and french fries
these are manditory when you visit the mn state fair its like how you have to do homework and read in school. these make your tounge dance! all i can say is HAVE THEM:)

Sweet Martha's Cookie Jar
You can buy a paper cone overflowing with the best cookies I've ever eaten, or buy a whole bucket full of them to bring home! They hardly lasted a few days when I stayed up there last year.
There's a grocery store!
Yes, considering everything else up at the Minnesota State Fair, there's a grocery store, too! It's in the alley behind the poultry barn, and that is where they make some huge, delicious sub sandwiches! You can also buy an assorted amount of other things, from apples (to escape the fried food lining every street), any type of bottled drink that floats your boat, or to flip-flops in case of a shoe crisis.
It's a must, every year we take a walk through the Cultural Bazaar. Not only do they have amazing food from darn near everywhere, but they also have a lot of other things too; jewelry, clothing, and many sorts of cultural art.
The Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum
Another must, we always walk around the Coliseum, just inside the doors there's a ring of little shops that encircles the Coliseum. Just make sure you remember which doors you came in, you don't want to get mixed up by walking out the wrong door!
