Popular Food Court Readies New Offerings For State Farm Show

School children look at the 2008 Pennsylvania Farm Show's official butter sculpture at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center, Thursday, Jan. 3, 2008.

The annual Pennsylvania Farm Show is right around the corner, and for many attendees a visit to the food court will be at the top of the agenda.

New concessions this year will include chocolate chip cookies from PennAg Industries; sloppy joes, Philly cheesesteaks and kielbasa with sauerkraut from the Pennsylvania Livestock Association; and corn fritters from the Pennsylvania Vegetable Growers Association.

Returning food attractions include milkshakes from the dairymen's association, potato doughnuts from the potato growers' cooperative and deep-fried mushrooms from the mushroom farmers' association.

About 2,000 volunteers staff the food court, which is expected to do about $2 million in sales.

The Farm Show runs Jan. 6-13 at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, although the food court will open after noon on Jan. 5.

Election night results for Pennsylvania governor, the U.S. Senate race, and the 12th and 17th congressional districts.
