At the fair, I try to eat things that remind me of the rural farming communities of Minnesota. One of these is the sweet corn at the stand near the grandstand. Minnesota is a big corn producing state!
Swedish Meatballs/Egg Coffee
The Swedish meatballs and egg coffee at the Salem Lutheran Church dining hall bring back memories of the many Swedish Meatball Dinners of my home church, Marshall Lutheran Church, rural Adams, Minn.
I go to Andres Watermelon stand on Underwood St. at least three times during the fair. The fresh watermelon reminds me of the many home gardeners in Minn.
Ham Loaf Dinner
At least one ham loaf dinner at Hamline United Methodist Church dining hall is a must during the fair. Brings back memories of the many hogs we raised on our farm in Clayton Township, Mower County. We sold all of our hogs to Hormel's in Austin where they were processed into many good hams!
Monique's List by Monique Navarrette
It has to be the stand outside the Food Building. Its fried dough with powder suger. The food that can not be shared. It is that good.
From Del Sol. The best tacos at the Fair!
From the Food Building. Fish on a stick, what more can I say.
A tradition! Get a great spot by judging, get something from the food building, and people watch before the parade. I love the Bull at the end and always wave to the street cleaner.
