The Fresh French Fries stand at the Great Minnesota Get-Together has the state's best French Fries. "The stand takes just-harvested local potatoes and turns them into some of the crispiest and fluffiest in the country." - LoveFood.

Founded in 1973. Fresh French Fries has been serving delicious, fresh-cut fries at the Minnesota State Fair for over 50 years now. Our first name is Fresh, and that's our top priority! We only use homegrown, Minnesota potatoes from Big Lake, picked just days before they are cooked. Our commitment to freshness has made us a beloved institution at the fair, and we're proud to continue serving you the Best French Fries in America.


Over the years, our operation has grown from small, street-side portable booths to much larger, permanent buildings containing state-of-the-art equipment. As our buildings grew, so did our extended FFF family. Today, we have employees whose parents once worked for us, and we've become an essential part of the fair's community.
