So maybe you are not the next Food Network Star, but you do know how to make an excellent berry pie. Well if that’s the case, the Vancouver Farmers Market is hosting a BC Berry Pie Competition and is looking for entrants.  Everyone is welcome to enter.  Your pie can be made with any mix of fresh berries whether blackberries, raspberries, strawberries or any combination you can think of.   Prizes include:

1st PRIZE – $50 Market Money and a Market Bag
2nd PRIZE – $20 Market Money and a Market Bag
3rd PRIZE – $15 Market Money

Judging will be done by Mijune Pak of Follow Me Foodie, food blogger extraordinaire, and Lawren Moneta, a local food stylist.  On market day, July 17th, shoppers will be able to sample the pies including the winning one by way of a $2 donation at the Thornton Park (Main Street) Farmers Market.  Also on hand, will be activities for the kids, berry facts and lots of recipes.   All winning recipes from the competition will be posted on the Vancouver Farmers Market website.   To enter the contest, contact robyn@eatlocal.org or visit Vancouver Farmers Market website to download an entry form.  May the best pie win!
