Annual Apple Pie Contest

Rochester: Saturday, October 13, judging starts at 11 a.m.

The People’s Food Co-op Annual Apple Pie Contest will take place this year during the People’s Picnics in Rochester.

Winners will be announced when the judges have tabulated their scores. Entrants must pick up their pie tins by 10 p.m. that day, if they wish them returned. Affix a tag with your name and phone number to the bottom of the pan.

You must bake the pie yourself and drop it off along with your recipe and a completed entry form at the store on the day of the contest (entry forms are available at the stores’ customer service desks).

A panel of judges will rate the pies on appearance, crust, filling, recipe creativity, and overall taste. You will receive a $5 gift certificate just for entering the contest. Each participant may enter only one pie in the contest.

The winning recipes will be published in the Co-op Shopper, so be prepared to share your super-secret family heirloom recipe with your fellow co-op owners!

Cost: Free event.
