Ashfield food vendors offer seasonal favorites such as home-made fresh pumpkin donuts, applesauce sundaes, and apple pie. Local maple products are featured in offerings such as fried dough with maple cream and maple sno-cones. Heartier fare, including burgers, grinders, chili, and crawfish pasta are also available.
