We listened to you! Big changes are afoot for our 25th year at the fair.
French Meadow's State Fair location is celebrating our 25th successful year with some extensive renovations and updates that will make your experience better than ever! Due to increasingly high demands for our fair offerings and input from our loyal customers, we've done a complete remodel. Our kitchen has been expanded with an arsenal of sparkling new equipment that willl streamline food preparation and shorten wait time. On the outside, we've added addtional ordering windows -- five total! -- where you can order all of the favorite menu offerings that our customers know and love, including bakery, grill, and People's Organic coffee drinks. (Mini Sconuts! Earth Wings - vegan & gluten-free! Hot Scones with Fruit & Fresh Cream! You'll still be able to relax at our informal seating and our popular covered patio tables.
Since 1996 French Meadow Bakery & Café has earned a loyal following among Minnesota State Fair-goers by offering natural, unique food options that are also deliciously indulgent. This year we step up the game with our newest creation, Earth Wings® , as a featured new food on our fair menu.
Already a hit appetizer at our Minneapolis and St. Paul flagship restaurants, Earth Wings® are made with fresh cauliflower pieces (“wings”), dipped in our signature seasoned batter, deep-fried to perfection, and smothered in organic sesame BBQ sauce. The savory, meaty texture will satisfy even dedicated meat lovers, yet they are both vegan and gluten-free. They go perfectly with our Infused Cucumber Iced Lemonade – made with Minnesota-grown cucumbers and Meyer lemons -- a refreshing fan favorite over the last few years.
French Meadow also is offering State Fair visitors a Gluten-Free Rustic Sandwiches, created to further deliver on our commitment to offer delicious gluten-free options.
