Congratulations on marriage!!!! Barb's article s so true. What I found out is a lot of the fair grounds hold other events on the grounds inside the buildings like dog show and gun shows etc... during the winter.

So very true Barb! First of all, congrats, wishing you a happy married life.
One of the reasons I do not want a stationary Food Booth is exactly for the reasons you stated. Fortunatly I'm retired and have an income during the off season so I pick and chose which gigs I want to do during the season and then I call the Vernonia Salmon Festival in October my last gig until next year and put everything away.
I suppose I could lease a space someplace inside for the winter, lots available in the Portland / Vancouver area, but I really don't want to work year 'round. Also don't want the expense involved with all of the different agencies hands out to take your profits.
I'll just kick back, take a trip to a warmer climate in the Motor home and sell some trinkets if I feel like it at swap meets. No Health Dept's hassles or expenses, no spoilages, no great product expenses.
See y'all next year fellow Foodies, have a great holiday and stay warm.
