* 19. Menu Items:  

To best showcase your food, all menu items must be consistent with the character of your establishment and a copy of your menu is required in the application process. Additionally, the application will ask that you include the weight in ounces of each menu item, subject to approval.

New this year, we are encouraging vendors to serve more “Taste of” items! 

"Taste of" items are menu items that are priced no higher than $3.00  

You may submit (2) to (6) total menu items that best represent your establishment.  
There should be no more than (6) items on your menu:

·       If you have (6) menu items, at a minimum (3) must be “Taste of” items

·       If you have (5, 4, or 3) menu items, at a minimum (2) must be “Taste of” items

·       If you have (2) menu items, at a minimum (1) must be “Taste of” items
 
Historically, many vendors have found the majority of items sold onsite are "Taste of" items so if a you would like to serve a menu of all "Taste of" items, that would be welcomed.
It's up to you!

Menu item prices must be in multiples of .50 and "Taste of" items may not be priced higher than $3.00.
