All children’s entries must be overseen by an adult.

Prizes for Pie Contest winners will be announced by August 20th.

Here are some frequently asked – and frequently updated – questions about the pie contest:

Can I – an ordinary Tuesday Market customer – enter a pie in the contest?

Yes, of course.

Will everyone be allowed to eat lots of pie?

Yes, of course.

Who will benefit from this pie contest?

I'm so glad you asked. This contest is a benefit for FoodStampsX2, so the primary beneficiaries of this contest will be the people whose SNAP benefits (food stamps) are doubled when they shop at Tuesday Market.

Will there be categories in the contest?

Yes, the categories are: Most Beautiful Pie, Best Gluten-Free Pie, Best Kid's Pie (meaning best pie made by a kid), And Best Pie.

What counts as a kid?

Anyone 13 years old or younger.

Are there limitations to what kinds of pies I can make?

Yes. No custards or quiches or savory pies allowed. Just fruit pies. And the fruit should – please – be local, because how else could you make the best pie ever if it's not with local fruit?

How many pies can I bring?

As many as your generous heart desires, but you should only enter one pie in the contest.

Should the pie have my name on it?

The pie should come with an index card that includes your name and a list of all ingredients.

Will I win? (This is, in fact, the most frequently asked question about the pie contest, straight from the mouth of my son Silas.

Maybe.

What if I want to donate to FoodStampsX2 right now or donate more than the $5 for pie?

It's easy. Here's how: 

  • Contribute cash and checks directly at the Tuesday Market tent (purple awning).
  • Or: Send checks made out to Tuesday Market to 1 Ventures Field Rd, Northampton, MA, 01060 (please write FSX2 Donation in the Memo line.)
  • OR: If you’d like to make a larger, tax-deductible donation, please make checks out to our fiscal sponsor, Federation of Massachusetts Farmers Markets with Northampton Tuesday Market Food Stamp Doubling in the Memo line. (You can send these directly to the Tuesday Market address above or bring them to us at the market tent.)
