Food Info

The theme of the festival is an old-fashioned country fair held in the rural south. Foods, crafts, entertainment and activities are chosen with that theme in mind. Therefore, many foods like nachos, tacos, pizza, steak-on-a-stick, etc. are not appropriate. Our food booths are located in rustic sheds or tents. We do not allow modern food trucks or trailers in the exhibit area. Booth fee is $175 and if electricity is used $25 fee. Most, but not all, of our food booths are manned by local civic organizations. Listed below are foods we already have at the fair. We do not duplicate food booths.


We have a relationship with Coca-Cola. You can order Coke®, Diet Coke®, Sprite®, Dr. Pepper®, Dasani water and Powerade® (Fruit Punch, Berry Blast, Lemon-Lime & Grape).  Prater’s Mill will provide credit of the duration of the fair but all Coke Product MUST be ordered and purchased from Prater’s Mill.  No product may be brought in from another source. Doing so will jeopardize your place as a vendor. Coke Product must be ordered from Prater’s Mill by 5:00 PM September 30. Your Coke product order is to be picked up from the Coke truck behind the Cotton Gin on Friday between  9-11am or 5-7pm. All orders must be picked up during this time. Additional stock can be picked up from the coke trailer Saturday evening between 5 – 6:00pm. You will be allowed to leave stock on the truck either day noting the above times when the truck will be attended. You will need to have your own transportation to get the products from the Coke truck to your booth. You may return for credit any FULL MATCHED CASE  (24 bottles of the exact same product) Sunday evening between 4:30-6:00pm. NO RETURNS after 6:00pm on Sunday.  Empty crates must be returned Sunday to the Coke truck. You will be charged for any crates left at your booth and will jeopardize your place as a vendor.  Payment for all coke product used plus sales tax (Prater’s Mill is not sales tax exempt) is due to Prater’s Mill Sunday by 6:00pm.  All Product is to be sold for $2.00 each.

You may also make and sell Brewed Tea, Lemonade, Limeade, Coffee without restriction.
