Vegan Eats at the Great Minnesota Get-Together

Who wants some strawberries and creme?? The Minnesota State Fair (August 22nd to Sept 2nd) is rolling around again. Although the glorification of animal agriculture presents a moral quandary (or quandairy if you will) for many vegans, supporting the vegan options if you do attend is a clear decision for your moral compass and, alluringly, your taste-buds.

Tried and true mainstays, French Meadow and Harry Singh’s Caribbean, coupled with stereotypical fair cuisine, like fried fruit on-a-stick and grilled peaches make for an attractive variety of vegan food for this year’s fair.

Here is the map with UMN CAA’s top vegan food picks for the 2019 fair. 

The Minnesota State Fair has plenty of options that secretly are already or can be made vegan if you know where to look! Please note: Brim’s ‘Sota Sandwich is made with bread containing honey and is not vegan.
