there are a lot of food stands at the fair. there are a couple i will mention that are very good to check out. maybe the other chowhounders from Syracuse can add more. the Fair opens 08-21 thru 09-01
1. Dinosaur Bar-B-Q will have a huge stand set up. i
think they are right near Cole Muffler Court.
2. there is a delicious fudge making stand that is set
up in the Center of Progress building. there are other fudge sellers, but this one is making it fresh right there and it is still warm. i scarfed this stuff like crazy last time i was there. (2001). they are the favorite now. can't recall their name, but they were written up in one of the Syracuse papers.
3. there are also a number of "apple dumpling" sellers
there, a dessert specialty. there is one that is supposed to be the best, but i can't recall their name
either. ask a regular.
