15 new food vendors will bring plenty of different options to try at the New York State Fair this year. From Maine lobster to Texas barbecue, there's sure to be something for every taste bud.

“This large crop of new food and drink providers will offer fairgoers a wonderful chance to try new things and find new favorites," State Fair interim Director Sean Hennessey said. "At the same time, faithful fairgoers will be delighted to return to food places that they only get a chance to try once a year, too. I’ve already started to plan my Fair meals.”
