Being Vegan at the New York State Fair [PHOTOS]

Jumpin’ Zach Flash, Oldiez 96.1

It’s fair time. Yes, the Great New York State Fair is in full swing. And for many people, the highlight of the annual fair is the food. There’s a lot of meat, a lot of dairy products and tons of deep fried anything you can imagine. What is a vegan to do? Where can a person who doesn’t eat meat or dairy products have a meal? Well, I found a few places. 

1. The Apple Stand (Horticulture Building)

Grab an apple or two and some cider. The cider is really refreshing.

2. The Maple Syrup Stand (Horticulture Building)

Here, you can get free samples of maple syrup.

3. The Potato Booth (Horticulture Building)

If you can wait in the seemingly endless line, you can get a plain baked potato (no butter, no sour cream, no cheese–just plain). The Potato Booth is a popular place.

4. The Homegrown Tomato Company (Horticulture Building)

You can get a tomato and cucumber salad here. (The dressing seems to be vegan–no dairy–but always double check.)

5. Roasted Corn (Outside)

Here is one of my favorite things at the fair–roasted corn. When you order, make sure you say, “No butter.”

6. Smoothies (Outside)

I asked about dairy in the smoothies. They said that the smoothies are dairy-free. Again, always double check.

7. Candy Country Warehouse (Outside)

This may seem like an odd place to find something vegan (all that milk chocolate); however, there are seeds (pumpkin and sunflower) and nuts for sale. It’s a quick snack packed with protein.
