We're just over 2 months away from the 2019 Minnesota State Fair, but you can start salivating now if you like.

That's because the State Fair has released the list of new foods, drinks and vendors for this year's Great Minnesota Get-Together.

In total, there are 31 new items to sample from existing vendors, along with 7 entirely new food vendors who will debut at this year's fair.

The new entries include the Blue Ox Burger Bar, offering build-your-own-hamburgers on the southwest corner of Judson and Clough, next to the Miracle of Birth Center.

Here's the full list.
