Anna Aldridge, a Michigan native who sells maple syrup under the Maple Syrup Lady label at local markets, is teaming up with the Barton Creek Farmers Market to host a pie-making contest on Nov. 1. (UPDATE: Organizers delayed the event by a week because of rain in the forecast.) The event is free for entrants, and the pies will be auctioned off to raise money for Full Quiver Farms, a vendor at Barton Creek Farmers Market that recently lost the majority of its farm equipment in a barn fire.
You can register online at themaplesyruplady.com/piecontest and drop off your pie at 9 a.m. on that Saturday. The auction will be held at noon at the market, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at Barton Creek Square.
