Gone are the days where the only real options are Hot dogs, Burgers and Mushy Peas. Although for many a portion of Mushy Peas is a real reminiscence of their youth.
What to Eat at Goose Fair

2. Donuts Taste Better Than at a Bakery
|Goose Fair Donuts|
The Donuts at Goose Fair could rival any bakery. Especially when you're handed the bag and they're still warm. I could quite easily stand there and watch them being made for most of the night and one of the best places to buy them each year is up near the Scout Hut in the top right-hand corner of the Fair. Staffed by Scouts and Volunteers so you know your money is going to a good cause instead of the vendors back pocket.
3. The Fair Has Always Been About Toffee Apples

4. Hot Dogs Have Gone Upmarket
The humble frankfurter hot dog seems a thing of the past as sausages have gone upmarket and cooked under would and charcoal for extra flavour. Meat has now started to become more specialist. Below is pictured a Krakowy sausage from the stand that faces The Forest Tram Stop.

5. Grab a Cock on a Stick
It may sound a little rude but the stall selling cocks on sticks has been at Goose Fair as long as I can remember. These sugar candy cockerels are often referred to in form of innuendo but the stall is there every year so they clearly must be selling well.

6. Something Different- Baklava and Ethnic FoodThe extreme sweetness of baklava is fantastic with the rush of all the bright lights and loud music at Goose Fair

Alternately if you like your cuisine from a little further east, Goose Fair has a great selection of Chinese, Indian and other Asian flavours.
|Noodles are popular at Goose Fair|
|Samosas, Onion Bhaji and Pakora are great snacks at the fair|
7. Right Now I Fancy a Hot Pork (or Hog Roast) Cob With Stuffing
On a cold October night a hot pork cob with stuff and maybe a little apple sauce is a great filling warmer.
