Downtown Garland Restaurants to Offer “Fair Fare on the Square” Throughout September
September in North Texas normally means Big Tex, midway fun and fried food galore. This year, area residents can still get their fix of “fair fare” all in one convenient, walkable location – downtown Garland’s historic Square.
That’s because 14 eateries situated around the Square have teamed up to offer a tantalizing menu of all things “fit to be fried” or served on a stick. “Fair Fare on the Square” kicks off on September 1 and will run through the end of the month. Bacon funnel cake? Check. Chicken fried burnt ends? Check. Fried chocolate dipped strawberries? And that’s just a sneak peek. Make a progressive meal of it, and order lots to share, or come back on multiple days to sample even more.
Best of all, there’s no admission fee, food items are reasonably priced (from $5 - 10), and everything can be enjoyed outdoors. When placing an order, just request a free “Square Meal” kit that includes a red-checkered table cloth, plates, utensils and napkins, and then head to one of the Square’s socially distanced, umbrella-shaded café tables. Please check directly with each restaurant for their opening hours and days. Below is a list of participating restaurants and more of their “Fair Fare.”
