The Rice County Fairgrounds is going to be a pretty busy place in the next few weeks. On top of the county fair scheduled to happen in July, in two weeks the fairgrounds will once again be awash with the scent of fair food staples like corndogs, cheese curds, pretzels, and fresh Mexican food. Coming up on the weekend of May 15-16 there will be 8 food trucks along with the Cannon Valley Farmers Market and the Spring Flea Market sale from Rice County's Historical Society taking place.

The Rice County Fairgrounds posted the event this morning and are expecting 8 food trucks to be on hand. Those trucks that are mentioned by the event are:

  • Cavemen Grilling
  • Delicious Potatoes
  • El Rey Del Taco
  • Lopez Concessions
  • Pretzel Wiz
  • Schroder Concessions
  • Temple Concessions
  • The Local Plate

In addition to the food trucks, the Rice County Historical Society will be having their Spring Flea Market going on as well as the Cannon Valley Farmers Market. Those attending any of the events at the Fairgrounds that weekend are being asked to follow "social distancing. Customers will be allowed to eat food they purchase as long as they stay within their group and spread out at least six feet apart from others. No tables or chairs will be provided, but customers are allowed to bring their own."

Food trucks will be vending food, on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

The Spring Flea Market will run on Saturday May 15 from 8am to 2pm, more on that event here.

The final Cannon Valley Farmers' market will have new hours to coincide with the Flea Market and run 10-2pm on Saturday too. More details on the farmers market can be found here.
