by Patrick Herron

Per Main Street Takoma:
The Takoma Park Farmers Market Annual Pie Contest is scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 18th on Laurel Avenue in Takoma Park. Bakers are invited to enter their best pies made using seasonal ingredients available now at the market – both sweet or savory. Celebrity judges taste the pies and winners are named in the following categories: Best Apple Pie, Best Peach Pie, Best Other Pie, Best Kid’s Pie, Most Unusual Pie, Yummy Mess Award, and Professional Baker.

Each year about 50 pies are entered and have included classic pies to creative uses of market ingredients. Following judging, the market slices up the pies and sells them to the public to raise money for the market’s Federal Benefit Match Program. Tickets for pie slices will be sold inside the farmers market which is adjacent to the event.
