For those who don't know, they have a permanent storefront in Markham near Woodbine and Denison I believe, so you don't necessarily have to wait for the CNE to get your fix...
They normally have a spin-the-wheel around the grounds where you spin the wheel for a coupon. Sometimes you will get a free dozen, or buy 2 dozen get 2 dozen free, or if you're lucky, buy 1 dozen get 3 dozen free.... just go at different times to spin until you get the coupon you want. lol...

A smart RFD will buy his lunch beforehand (like Mr.Sub) or have homemade sandwiches, and then bring it into the grounds, thus saving the cost of one overpriced meal.

What’s the point of going to the Ex then? The thing I most look forward to every year is the food!

Edit:

New this year! The Food Building special offers are available for the 2019 CNE! Please see below for a printable version of these special deals! Remember to cut these out before you arrive at the fair.

Guess you have to print them out?

Anyone know if we can just show the coupons on our phone? Or do we need to print out?

If you're going for the exotic I suppose.

I'm not trying to be a downer, just want to point out a lot of the coupons are for food you can get at any shopping mall and from the looks of it, a few are for a free fountain pop with meal purchase.

This is laughable to me....From BlogTO, here's 10 cheap foods you can get

Al Pastor Taco ($6)
Homemade Beef Patty ($4)
Mini Arancini Rice Balls (three for $6)
Baha Pollo Taco ($6)
Soft Pretzel ($4.50)
Jerk Tofu Skewer ($5)
Baha Cauliflower ($5.50)
Italian Sausage Hot Dog ($6)
Build-A-Pasta ($6)
Deep Fried Mars Bar ($6)

Really!?!?! Everything on this list is overpriced and a pass to me. Eg. $6 for a Italian Sausage Hot dog - I go to Costco and pay $1.50 for the dog and a drink.

It really is no wonder why attendance is dwindling year by year IMO. The old days of value are gone.

Hi hi I grew up back east and I’m curious what the food building is like now, 30 years later? I use to live that place. And they seem to have really good value especially with coupon books.

Is it mostly overpriced now? Or good value etc.

Primo Spaghetti - $1 spaghetti (not great but it was $1 and nostalgia to eat it for some reason)
Better than Catellis overpriced Kraft/Heinz Crap.
Still only a $?
U still have to pay for goods/services U agreed to — even if U did so only unconsciously.
A Visa Canada survey of web shoppers, 1 in 4 said they read all the online text. 50% skimmed it & 27% Read Nothing at all before accepting a tainted offer.

You can go to Costco year around to ride the shopping carts, look at the warehouse and buy in bulk more than you need after buying a membership.
Some truth to that.

I need my yearly 99 cent spaghetti. If that price ever goes up, I'll flip a table.
