Haney Farmers Market - Apple Pie Challenge
What better way to herald in the beginning of Autumn than with an APPLE PIE CONTEST!
There is no fee to enter, instead, bakers will provide a second pie that will be sold by the slice to the public in support of Haney Farmers Market Society activities. Unsold pies will be donated to the Saturday-night Community Dinner. Judging commences at 11:15 am; winner will be announced at 12:30 pm. One winner will be declared in each of the follow categories: Best Traditional (two crust) Pie, Best Non-Traditional Pie, Best Over-All. A special "Pie It Forward" prize will be awarded to the baker who enthusiastically recruits the most competitors to the contest!
Best of luck to all the contestants!
GetiFest (Golden Ears Transition Initiative) is also happening today! This year's theme is "Sustainable Community" and will highlight groups, organizations, and individuals that are involved in making our community a better place to live, work, and play. They will focus on the pillars of Sustainability; Healthy environment, Food security, Local economy, Social collaboration, and Health and wellbeing. There will be lots to see and do!
Fall produce is starting to roll in to the market now. Come see your favourite farm vendor tables awash with colour.
For lunch, Vik and Jas's Kitchen are cooking up veggie curry dishes! Delicious and nutritious, made with their own Ace Curries spice blends. Aroma Catering is here with their food truck, menu items changing weekly, so they always have something new.
Join us on Saturday! - FOR PIE! Mmmm pie...
