Remember Babe Malloy's Drive-In???
Such an important part of the fair every year is food. Each year patrons flock to the WNC Ag Center to satisfy their cravings for deep fried, hmm, well, just about deep fried anything. Or maybe it’s ribbon fries, or corn dogs, or giant turkey legs they seek. Either way, they come hungry.
Well, that’s the great thing about the fair. There is plenty of food to go around, and there’s lots to choose from too. In addition to the hot dogs, burgers, pizza, and fries, you’ll find authentic Greek, Cajun and Mexican dishes, emu burgers, edible bread bowl soups, gourmet coffee, homemade ice cream, and even homemade sodas (you’ve got to try the cream soda).
And this year you can even get a classic chipped ham sandwich—longtime Buncombe County residents will remember these from Babe Malloy’s drive-in. Ahh, the good ole’ days.
So the most important thing to remember when coming to this year’s Mountain State Fair is...you better come hungry! Because in order to enjoy the full fair experience, you gotta eat the food. I know I will. See you there. Casey Allen, Media Specialist
