NEWBURGH, Ind. (WEHT) – The Historic Newburgh Farmers Market is holding a pie contest.

Historic Newburgh, Inc. says the rules are simple: pies can be sweet or savory.

Your main ingredient (apples, cherries, blueberries, peaches, chicken, egg, beef, etc.) must be locally grown or raised, and your crust must be made from scratch.

The rules do not allow for 50/50 pies (frozen crust with homemade filling).

If you want to bake a pie for the contest, you don’t need to pre-register. Just bring your pie to the farmers market from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 13.

Put your name on a piece of tape and stick it to the bottom of the pan.

Organizers also ask that you bring an index car with your name and phone number on one side, and the ingredient list on the other.

If the recipe is a family secret, you’re only required to list your ingredients.

The pies will be judged in two categories: sweet and savory.

The winner of each category will receive $100.

If you have questions, email events@historicnewburgh.org or call the Historic Newburgh office at 812-853-2815.
