Food at the Fair

The San Mateo County Fair starts this Saturday! June 11th!

They only come here once a year. You know what we’re talking about: Fair Food! That includes deep fried treats, funnel cakes, BBQ’s, pizzas, burgers, smoothies, ice creams, and more.

However, there are healthy choices on the menus! Several of our Food Concessionaires are participating in the Healthy Food Fare at the San Mateo County Fair, a collaborative effort with the San Mateo County Public Health Nutrition. Selected items from their menu are evaluated by the San Mateo County Health Department and will be featured in the food court. This will include menu items that represent a major whole food group (grains, fruits, vegetables, dairy, or protein), are low-fat or non-fat dairy items, are appropriate portion sizes, are prepared using low-fat cooking methods (grilling and baking), or are using locally grown produce.
