Food favorites from the Maryland State Fair [Pictures]
The 2012 Maryland State Fair runs Aug. 24 through Sept. 3, and the Midway is again the place for perennial favorites such as funnel cake and Italian sausage. But there are a few new twists for 2012. Making their Timonium debuts will be two new chicken booths, one selling a variety of wings with fresh-cut fries and the other chicken-on-a-stick with ribbon fries. Also, new this year: red velvet funnel cake with cream cheese topping. Off the Midway, the Maryland Foods Pavilion will have a new sandwich this year. It's the Crab Patty -- a crab cake topped with a soft-shell crab. Here are a few of the new food items, along with some favorites from past editions of the Maryland State Fair.--Richard Gorelick
