Do you want to win $100? It’s time to fire up your oven and enter the Apple Dessert Contest! Not as fussy as the traditional berry pie contest, any dessert that features apples is fair game. Just make sure to get it to the Independence Farmers Market by 10:15. I’m usually at the Market by 7:30 if you need to drop it off on your way to work…Judging starts at 10:30 and the winner will be announced when all entries have been sampled by the judges. First place is $100, 2nd is $30 and 3rd is $20 The remaining desserts will be sliced and sold to benefit the Market. Thanks to our sponsors the Law office of Jonathon Venzie and Skyline Bank.
Apple Day also features a free community cider pressing. Please be sure to bring your own containers!
In addition, we’ll be pressing cider to benefit the Market and donations are greatly appreciated. We’ll have a small press will be available in the Kids Corner. We are also taking donations of clean quart, 1/2 gallon or gallon containers.
