2012 BC Fall Fruit Pie Competition
Are you known for your flaky crust? Are your insides sweet and delicious? We're not talking about you personally but rather your pie! If you make a great pie, we'd love to see it at the market for our annual BC Fall Fruit Pie Competition.
Fall fruit can include: plums, pears, crabapples, apples, quince and cranberries. You can even use local nuts like hazelnuts and walnuts. You're welcome to use fall veggies too but keep it low-risk, unfortunately no pumpkin or cream pies can be entered because of their perishable qualities.
Some delicious pies have been entered in the past including ones with spikes of rum and whiskey, nut crusts and even vegan delights!
If you think you have a winner, fill out this application and apply by October 15th. Bring your pie submissions to the West End Farmers Market on October 20th and cross your fingers for a decision in your favour.
And heck, if you're at the market anyway, you might as well enjoy our annual Harvest Festival which includes informative displays about apples and squash, apple tastings, recipes for fall meals and desserts and loads and loads of fresh BC fall produce. Stick around for pie samples as we dole out the entries after they've been judged and awarded their prizes.
There's even fun for the kids at our Fun with Food tent (sponsored by Dilly Dally).
Enjoy fall at the market and we wish all entrants in the pie competition, the best of luck!
