The Pie Contest Schedule
1:30 -2:30: Pie drop-off (early drop-off can be arranged if necessary)
Pies are the baked item which can be made with meat and fruits. But, fruit pies are so tasty as it contains fruit and it is healthy too. The children will enjoy eating those fruit pies. Now there are many classes taken for the children to learn how to cook without fire. The contests will be organized for the children and the winners will get prizes for their pies. Like this, they will conduct various contests to motivate the children.

Here are some frequently asked – and frequently updated – questions about the pie contest:
Can I – an ordinary Tuesday Market customer – enter a pie in the contest?
Yes, of course.
Will everyone be allowed to eat lots of pie?
Yes, of course.
Who will benefit from this pie contest?
I’m so glad you asked. This contest is a benefit for FoodStampsX2, so the primary beneficiaries of this contest will be the people whose SNAP benefits (food stamps) are doubled when they shop at Tuesday Market.
Will there be categories in the contest?
Yes, the categories are: Most Beautiful Pie, Best Gluten-Free Pie, Best Kid’s Pie (meaning best pie made by a kid), And Most Outstanding Pie.
What counts as a kid?
Anyone 13 years old or younger.
Don’t the Nields have a new book coming out?
Why, yes! The pie contest is also a release-party for their book, All Together Singing in the Kitchen
Are there limitations to what kinds of pies I can make?
Yes. No custards or quiches or savory pies allowed. Just fruit pies. And the fruit should – please – be local, because how else could you make the best pie ever if it’s not with local fruit?
How many pies can I bring?
As many as your generous heart desires, but you should only enter one pie in the contest.
Should the pie have my name on it?
The pie should come with an index card that includes your name and a list of all ingredients.
Will I win? (This is, in fact, the most frequently asked question about the pie contest, straight from the mouth of my son Silas.)

Who is going to be the judge of the contest?
