Canceled Fair Tempts Taste Buds with Take Out
State and County Fairs may be canceled, but most are finding ways to continue giving us what want and crave: the food! I don't know what they were serving up at the Great Schaghticoke Fair 200 years ago, but I don't think they were as blessed with all the deep fried goodies as we are today. Unfortunately, this legendary Capital Region event won't be happening as a result of the pandemic, but that does't mean you can't indulge in some good old fashioned Fair fatness. According to the Troy Record, the Great Schaghticoke Fair is presenting "Fair Food Take Out Week."
According to information listed on their website, from September 3rd through the 7th, you can do take-out from vendors like Herrington's BBQ, Farmer's Feed Bunk, Reggie's Veggies, Jeanette's Fried Dough and others. Food is available from 4pm-8pm daily and there's no cost for admission or parking.
Many of your favorites like barbecue chicken, sausage and pepper sandwiches, cotton candy, deep-fried EVERYTHING as well as apple cider cider doughnuts and ice cream will be available.
According to the Troy Record, the food is takeout, however if you want, you can use the picnic tables they have that will be spaced ten feet apart.
In addition to hand washing stations that will be prominent throughout the grounds, masks are required whenever consumers are unable to properly social distance.
