The Best Vegetarian Food at the MN State Fair

The Best Vegetarian Food at the MN State Fair

When you think of the Midwest diet, your brain might say, “Bacon! Beef Jerky! MEAT!” But in reality, Minnesota has really excelled in the vegan/vegetarian department in the past few years, and the infamous State Fair is no exception. We recently visited the Great Minnesota Get Together and came up with a list of some of our favorite treats. Fear not — you won’t go hungry if you’re avoiding the meat.

The Classics

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies @ Sweet Martha’s Cookies

  • Cheese Curds @ Mouth Trap

  • Deep Fried Oreos @ Deep Fried Candy Bars

  • Corn on the Cob @ Corn Roast (Vegan Option)

  • Garlic Fries @ Ballpark Cafe (Vegan)

  • Deep Fried Pickles @ Preferred Pickle (Vegan Option)

The Unique

  • Blueberry Lemon Pie @ Sara’s Tipsy Pies (Vegan Option)

Now, of course there are more standard options like falafel, fried rice, salad, etc. but we just wanted to mention the special eats that you don’t usually have a chance to munch on elsewhere. We were only looking for the unique or particularly well done items. Oh, and the beer. Just look at all these options!
