Strangest State Fair Food
Emu Tacos and Ostrich Quesadillas
North Carolina State Fair
Where’s the beef? Calling on some of North Carolina’s more exotic birds, NC State Fair vendor Raintree Farms serves up emu tacos and ostrich quesadillas from one of the most eye-catching booths on the scene (you can’t miss the 15-foot inflatable ostrich head). “People want to experience something they may not come across every day in grocery stores or restaurants,” says fair official Andrea Ashby. “The fair gives them the freedom to be adventurous and splurge.”
Where: Raleigh, NC
When: Fair opens mid-October.
