LAS CRUCES – Are you going to the Southern New Mexico Fair & Rodeo this weekend? Here is a list of some of the food you can expect to find at the fairgrounds.
1. Turkey leg
Turkey legs are pretty much everyone’s favorite dish and can be used in many ways! Share, eat it alone, stroll between the exhibits, or eat while being entertained. Nothing fits the fair more than turkey legs!
2. French fries
Of all the sliced fries, fried tape-sliced potatoes are this reporter’s favorite.
3. Funnel cake
Regardless of whether you grab a funnel cake to snack on for your trade fair visit or buy one on the go, everyone is guaranteed to eat at least one funnel cake this season.
4. Asadero cheese and green chilli quesadillas
Simple but tasty. Acosta Farm and its quesadillas are staples at the Southern New Mexico State Fair.

Lemonade is available at every corner of the fair, but sometimes you need a wider variety of flavors. There are plenty of Aguas Frescas sellers this year.

Fried food is synonymous with fairs, and this year is no different. Cucumbers, cookies, peaches and more are dipped in batter this weekend.
