IRVINGTON FARMERS MARKET ANNOUNCES:
OLD-FASHIONED PIE BAKING CONTEST!


IRVINGTON, NY (September 3, 2010) – Do you have what it takes to claim the
honor of “Best Pie Baker in Irvington”? If you have a delicious,
mouth-watering recipe that gets rave reviews, or a treasured heirloom recipe
handed down through the family, or simply enjoy baking homemade pies, then
here is your big chance.

The Irvington Farmers Market is searching for the best pie bakers in the
Village to share their favorite recipes and compete in a new contest on
September 15, 2010. A panel of Village Mystery Judges will preside over the
official taste testing.

Pies can be sweet or savory, must feature an ingredient purchased at the
Irvington Farmers market, such as locally-grown fresh fruits or vegetables,
artisanal cheeses, meats or seafood, and be made entirely from scratch
including pie crust. Recipe must be provided, but need not be original.

“The blend of talented local pie bakers using farm-fresh, local ingredients
is a delicious combination,” said Pascale Le Draoulec, Irvington Farmers
Market organizer. “The sky’s the limit on creativity and we hope to have a
wide range of entries that showcase the great variety of fresh ingredients
available at our market,” added Le Draoulec.

“The old-fashioned pie contest is a nostalgic and fun way to draw villagers
to the market, support our local farmers and bring friends and neighbors
together,” said Connie Kehoe, Village of Irvington Trustee.

Pies will be judged on taste, appearance and originality and extra points
will be given for sharing personal stories about why the pie recipe is so
special, such as family history, great memories or other. Village residents
can enter as many pies as they wish and winners will be selected from three
categories: Adults (ages 18 and up), Teenagers (ages 13-17) and Children
(up to and including age 12).

Judging will be held at the Irvington Farmer’s Market on September 15, 2010.
The market opens at 3:30 and closes at 7:30 p.m. Stay tuned for additional
details regarding pie drop off and judging times on the www.irvingtonny.gov
web site. Market Location: Main Street School Parking lot – 101 Main
Street, Irvington, NY. Free parking is available at the Irvington
Presbyterian Church.

The primary mission of the Irvington Village Farmers Market is to provide
the community with fresh, local produce direct from field to table.
