Piqua Farmers Market to host apple pie baking contest


PIQUA — The 2023 season of the Piqua Community Farmers Market will end on Thursday, Sept. 28, with an apple pie baking contest to help wrap up the season.

The pie-baking contest is open to anybody who would like to enter, and no pre-registration is required. The contest will have both adult and youth (14 and under) categories.

Pies can be dropped off at the market any time before 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28. Those entering the contest are encouraged to use scratch ingredients and all pies should be at least 60% apple. Entries will be judged for taste and appearance and the winners of the contest will win cash awards of $15 for first place, $10 for second place and $5 for third place. Following the judging the remaining apple pies will be served to market visitors and customers.
