Announcing Our New MN State Fair Foods for 2022!

Earth Sliders, new in 2022, from French Meadow at the Minnesota State Fair 2022

July 12, 2022:  We've been dying to tell, but couldn't say a peep until the Minnesota State Fair made the official announcement this morning...  now that our lips are unsealed, we can share French Meadow's two official new  State Fair foods for 2022, which are both vegan. (Not to brag, but there's a reason we were voted Best Vegan in Mpls St. Paul Magazine's recent Readers Poll!)  And lest you think we stopped at only two, read on below to see many more new creations we're debuting at the fair this year.   

We hereby declare that vegans have WON the "chicken sandwich wars" with these plant-based mini delights. We've created a delectible crispy fried "chicken" -- marinated, battered, and fried to perfection -- and topped with house-made pickles spiced with turmeric, garlic, and onion, a spicy secret sauce, and shredded lettuce, served on grilled slider-size buns.

Italian herb-seasoned "meat" balls, sautéed in our signature house-made garlic & oregano marinara sauce, topped with house-made (of course!), plant-based Parmesan "cheese" and fresh parsley, served with a warm, grilled slice of French Meadow's famous sourdough bread, so you can soak up every last bit of that sauce.
