Fair season starts this weekend

FRIED DOUGH – the go-to fair food at the Vermont State Fair in Rutland
by Alex Nuti-de Biasi, Journal Opinion
Assuming the rain ends (big assumption this year, we know), we expect plenty of people to head outdoors when fair season gets underway later this week. The Bradford Fair kicks off on Friday. You can also get a taste of the season at Warren Old Home Days, which starts on Friday as well.

To whet your appetite, here is a slideshow featuring fair foods from each of the 50 states. Fried dough from the Vermont State Fair in Rutland make the cut. The rest run the gamut — from pedestrian to spectacular culinary catastrophes.

Alaska’s entry has been called a “delicious, delicious disaster.”

See below for lists (c/o Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food, & Markets and the NH Fairs Association) of all the agricultural fairs in Vermont.

  1. I would argue that the Vermont State Fair food should be the Maple Creamie as served at the Maple Barn of the Vermont State Fair, and I am sure, most others as well. Fried bread dough is everywhere.
