Local amateur pie making enthusiasts gathered to present their freshly baked pies, made with local apples on Saturday September 25th to be judged at Ottawa Street Farmers' Market first ever Apple Pie contest. One of the rules was that apples had to be purchased from the farmers' market.
The judges were Jeff Crump, Executive Chef for Ancaster Mill (on the far right), Brenda Fletcher of Fletcher Fruit Farm (in the baseball cap), Councillor Sam Merulla (to the left) and teen Mitchell Despinic.
Congratulations to Sandy Robinson for baking the winning apple pie. She won a basket of fresh apples and a Limoncello gift certificate. It was a close contest, as all the pies were tasty!
We look forward to next year's contest!
