67 years in business
Who she is: During fair season, Tish Saucier becomes everyone’s over-permissive grandmother, enticing sweet tooths big and small with her decadent caramel apples and her trademark Massachusetts accent. She lets us know, “I started spinning candy at the age of 8, and my family has been at the Dutchess County Fair for 67 years this year.” Now she enjoys showing her own grandkids how it’s done. In the offseason she hangs out at her vacation home in Spring Hill, FL with her Yorkie and her Sphinx cats.
What she sells: Candy, caramel & chocolate apples/Sno-Cones, cotton candy, popcorn, Jet Spray Juice, and fried dough
Where she travels from: North of Boston in Salisbury, MA
