I am going to the Brooklyn Fair for the first time on Friday and was wondering what they've got to eat? Anything special I should try?
The Brooklyn (CT) Fair is the best fair ever. There is the Pork Palace - a fair standard and the Sunflower Farm Pizza - commune from Maine that has been making a great pizza at the fair for many, many years. There is a local bison farmer who cooks bison burgers on his grill, too. Nuts, LOCAL Ice Cream, ooh! the Texas Grill taco steak or chicken salad, Apple Crisp, Roast Beef, Sauage and Peppers...Mmmmm Fair Food!!!
I don't recall too much about the food, I think it was pretty typical fair food, I always went to the Brooklyn Fair for the wacky contests they don't have at any other fairs, like the cast iron skillet toss. The last time I was there I did get some really delicious cinnamon almonds, but those are probably not specific to that fair.
Don't worry about those NYC-centric folk - I knew exactly where you meant!The bison burgers are great - check it out. Plus, it's always nice to be served by the farmer themselves.
We'll be headed up there Saturday night. I love this fair; along with the Lebanon fair, they're the best in the state.
