June 30, 2021
ST. PAUL – Is your mouth watering as you think about the Minnesota State Fair? Are you excited to sample your favorites and maybe add a few new flavors as you take in the Great Minnesota Get-Together?
Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU) has you covered. In addition to the Maple Cream Nitro Cold Press Coffee and the full coffee bar, MFU is debuting Cucumber Jalapeno Limeade, a limeade made with juiced Minnesota-grown cucumbers and jalapeno syrup, served with a cucumber slice. The Cucumber Jalapeno Limeade was among 26 foods featured on the 2021 Minnesota State Fair New Foods list.
“It’s a refreshing summer drink,” said Minnesota Farmers Union President Gary Wertish. “It’s guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds as we get back together at the Great Minnesota Get-Together.”
Minnesota Farmers Union has had a strong presence at the Minnesota State Fair since the 1950s, with a building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Cosgrove Street. It became the Farmers Union Coffee Shop in 2003 and has remained a destination for fairgoers to learn about Minnesota’s family farmers.
