Taste Winning Pies Saturday, July 17

I’m not a morning person. But, when I heard that the annual pie contest is being held tomorrow at the Mid-Town Farmer’s Market on Lamar, with the winners being announced at 9:00 a.m., well, I may have to grab a fork and bid a fond farewell to my pillow.

Judging begins at 8:00 a.m., and the pies will be ready to divvy up an hour after—for only a $1 per slice! Make sure you get there early because there’s only so much pie to go around.

While I’m on the subject, have you seen the website for the Midtown Farmer’s Market? Bookmark it and check back often to monitor which vendors are scheduled to sell each week.
