The 2019 season of the Piqua Community Farmers Market will wrap up this coming Thursday, September 19. On the last day of the market there will be an Apple Pie Baking Contest to help wrap up the season. The pie baking contest is open to anybody who would like to enter and no pre-registration is required. The contest will have both adult and youth (13 & under) categories.
Pies can be dropped off at the market any time before 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 19. Those entering the contest are encouraged to use scratch ingredients and all pies should be at least 60% apple. Entries will be judged for taste and appearance and the winners of the contest will win cash awards of $15 for first place, $10 for second place and $5 for third place. Following the judging the remaining apple pies will be served to market visitors and customers.
