Hey Market Friends --

Thanks for a great Pie Contest last week! We raised about $1600 to support our FoodStampsX2 Program at the market which, along with generous donations from businesses, will allow us to keep doubling SNAP benefits for the rest of this market season!

In case you were wondering who actually won the contests, here's the short list.

First place in the Most Beautiful Pie category went to Abby Rieser with this amazing hand-cut Apple Tart.

And here's Abby holding it.

First place in the Best Gluten Free Pie category went to Alex Fisher for her Chocolate Tofu Silk Pie.

First Place in the Best Pie Made by a Kid (under 13) went to Jaden, Caelen, and Nolen Finnie fore their Apple Pie.

And finally, first place in the Best Pie category went to Anne McGarry for her Raspberry-Blackberry Pie. Anne is a Hampshire College student from Chapel Hill, NC who showed up at the end of market to collect her pie dish completely surprised that she'd won.

37 pies were made and entered and every last slice was eaten. The morning downpour of rain didn't keep you all away. For more Pie Contest photos, go to our Facebook page.

We had awesome volunteers especially Risa Silverman for being volunteer coordinator extraordinaire; Sarah Buttenwieser and Jennifer Jacobsen for working with all the judges and behind the scenes to make it all happen; Mary Cowhey for being an amazing ongoing supporter of the FoodStampsX2 program in so many ways; members of the Key Club from Northampton High School for serving out lots of pie and more of you.

Our judges were also great and thorough and poetic. Special thanks to Stephen Kulik for being a stalwart supporter of farmers and agriculture and for judging Best Pie. Here he is saying how great our food stamps doubling program is because it increases people's buying power at the market.

If you missed the contest and you still want to contribute to our FoodStampsX2 program or if you had a great time at the contest and want to help more, here's the link to our Indiegogo Campaign. We are raising funds to support the program through all of next year and have great market products to thank you for your contribution. 

Now onto this week! So much beautiful food at market and the perfect weather for cooking and stewing and baking and preserving.

We will have Mary Witt from the O'Tones singing and playing with Annie Patterson of Rise Up Singing fame. And local artist Denise Beaudet will be bringing one of her life sized portraits of a woman changemaker along with postcards and smaller prints of the big piece. Could be this one of Chouchou Namegabe.

See you there!

Such a clean looking watch. I love the simplicity, but it stands out from the rest of the aviators out there with a few modern design updates. I would definitely love to add this to my collection! air max http://www.airmax90er.com.
