If there’s one thing that North County residents enjoy more than the beach, it’s the various cuisine, beverages, and sweet treats throughout San Diego. Here, we offer a taste of some local flavor.


Fair Food

In the spirit of this year’s San Diego County Fair theme, “How Sweet It Is!” food vendors will be offering especially creative and colorful treats for fair-goers, like cotton candy ice cream sandwiches and unicorn cupcakes. Longtime vendors will continue to serve up old fair favorites, including corn dogs, giant turkey legs, curly fries, funnel cakes, kettle corn, and all things deep fried!

Baseball Bites

Buona Forchetta offers simply delicious Italian fare from Neapolitan pizza to gelato. Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill will open one stand serving fish tacos and sandwiches and a second stand with an expanded menu of fresh, local seafood.
