The 2023 Great Waverly Pie Fest runs Thursday–Sunday, October 19–22. Enter your best 1- or 2- crust pie—sweet, savory, specialty, or vegan*—with special award points for pies featuring the most autumn farmers market products. Pies will be judged by celebrity/community judges and prizes will be awarded.
The ONLINE PIE AUCTION to benefit the Village Learning Place’s nutrition programs goes live on Thursday, October 19 at 10 am and closes at 8pm on Sunday, October 22. The sign-up for bakers for the online pie auction is open now until October 12th at 8pm. Virtually, folks will bid donations to the VLP and 29th Street Community Center, to win the pie of their choice! They encourage you to support the 32nd Street Farmers Market (that’s us!), and purchase all your pie ingredients from the market which is open every Saturday from 7am-12pm (Rain, Snow, or Shine). Click here to sign up for the online pie auction!
The PIE CONTEST at the Market on October 21 begins with contest entries delivered by 9 am, followed by judging and award presentations at 11 am. Pies then will be sliced and offered to the public for a $4+ donation per slice (tokens to be purchased ahead of time). Proceeds benefit the 29th Street Community Center’s teaching kitchen.
Join us and bake for great causes, and if you don’t bake—plan to come eat!
