The following information was provided by the Faire on the Square organizers:

You may ask, what happened at this year’s annual Faire on the Square Best Apple Pie Baker Contest? Well, here is the big wooden spoon scoop …

The contest was held Saturday, September 22nd in the Town Hall. The event was graciously hosted by Ms. Irene Frain and Ms. Ingrid Marchesano. The esteemed judges were: Veterans Randy Kenny; Dominic Rice and a resident judge.

Nine bakers entered this year’s contest with their prized-recipe apple pies. Some pies arrived to the event hot – just out of the oven. The bakers names were not included on the pies to insure impartiality of the judges.

The pies were judged by two categories: appearance and, of course, taste 

The apple of the judges’ eye were:

  • First prize winner: Jamie Mobed
  • Second prize winner: Molly Richmond
  • Third prize winner: Student residents of Tompkins Cottage, Perkins School for the Blind c/o Kathleen Power.  (The students baked Friday evening; their pie took top honors for most creative presentation)

First, second and third prizes were awarded to top bakers; participants and spectators shared samples of the pies at the conclusion of the competition. All entrants went home with a new hot mitt for their creative efforts.Well done bakers! And, see you next year at the Faire.
