What we have in store:
Pie Baking Contest
Think you’ve got what it takes? Enter your favorite pie into our contest and see! We award prizes for Best Amateur, Best Professional and many Honorable Mentions. Enter up to 2 pies, $5 entry fee per pie.
See the details here – Rules and Guidelines
**Slices of pie go on sale after the prizes are announced – around 11:30-12 depending on how many pies are entered**
Here is a list of previous year’s winners
Bake Sale or “Pie Adoption Center”
Love to make pies but don’t want to enter the contest? Donate it to the bake sale! The demand for whole pies is huge and we can’t keep up. Make a pie (or tarts, or hand pies).
Have fun! Make up a creative or silly name. Give it a story and write it on a card. Try out a new fancy crust decoration. Try a crazy flavor combo. Or honor Grandma by using her famous recipe.
The same Health Department restrictions apply to bake sale goods (shelf-stable only) as the Pie Contest. See here for details.
All proceeds go to the Anacortes Farmers Market, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit.
Love pie? Well you’re in luck! Buy a whole pie (or pie-ish goodie) beginning at 10am or wait until the pie contest is judged and buy a slice (around 12 but get there early). Whole pies are $20 and slices are $2 each. A slice of winning pie is $5 a slice.
Like it a la mode? Get a scoop of ice cream! Can’t have pie without coffee? We have that too!
Facebook Pie Haiku Contest (Pie-ku!)
No Contest this year – It’s just too much to manage at this time. We’ll try to bring it back next year. Here are 2016’s amazing entries
Kids Games and Activities
Kids getting restless waiting for pie? There will be Giant Jenga, a bean bag toss and several other fun activities!
