Food at the Festival
Our hosts at the Howard County Fairgrounds provide a wide variety of fair-style food concession booths throughout the grounds. From ribbon chips to ice cream, gyros to cotton candy, there is plenty to snack on.
There are also food booths throughout the grounds serving mouth-watering lamb dishes, from lamburgers and leg of lamb sandwiches to gyros and lamb sausages.
If you are shopping for food to take home with you, be sure and visit the Home Arts Building. There you will find lamb cuts from local producers, as well as sheep’s milk cheese, goat’s milk cheese, and local honey.
Our Festival Farm Market (outdoors, near the main gate) keeps getting stronger, featuring locally grown, crafted, and prepared farm goods. Stop by for:
- Lamb from Chestnut Creek Farm and the Maryland Lamb Co-op
- Baked Goods
- Coffee from Zeke’s Coffee
- Jams & Jellies
- Skin Care Products
- Beer from Milkhouse Brewery
The Big Tent in the Farm Market will have cheesemaking demonstrations with Colleen Histon of Shepherds Manor Creamery. Colleen will also have her award winning artisan sheep cheese for sale. Check the sign board outside the tent for demonstration times.
Bring your cooler and become part of the farm-to-fork (or pasture-to-plate) movement!
