Got Pie?

Sunday, August 15, 2010 @ 01:08 PM Karen Hood

3rd Annual Pie Festival

This Saturday is the 3rd Annual Pie Festival at the Liberty Lake Farmers’ Market. It is the one market day where everyone can celebrate one of their favorite foods- Pie.

We will have pie walks throughout the day. The pie walks are modeled after the old fashioned cake walk. When the music stops one person wins a pie.

The pie eating Contests are always lots of fun and very messy.  Join us and eat pie in a pie eating contest at 9:30, 10:30, or 11:30am.

What is your favorite kind of pie?

Some things never change. And the love of pie is one of those. Even with the invention of microwave dinners and fast food and candy bars people still like pie. And not just some people. Everybody loves pie.

Certified Organic
The WSDA Organic Food Program certifies Organic growers in Washington State. When you’re buying Certified Organic produce you know that the growers practices have been 3rd party varified. You can trust that pesticides, herbicides and all sorts of other chemicals haven’t touched your food. The standards are high because people like you want to know for sure that they are getting produce that is grown with the practices they most approve of.  You can see a list of all of the Certified Organic producers in the state of Washington here.
You may be surprised to find that there aren’t too many Certified Organic producers at the Liberty Lake Farmers’ Market. There are many reasons for this, but one of the reasons is that many of the farmers you see at the market have very small farms. They cannot justify the cost involved with Organic certification. If a farmer is not Certified Organic feel free to talk to them at the Market and ask them what their growing practices are. You have the right to know how your food was grown, and the Market is the best place to talk to the farmers.

At the Market you will find these Certified Organic Farms:

Tonnemaker Hill Farm, Royal City, WA
Grower #1287
126 Acres in Organic production

Twin Springs Farm, Rice, WA
Grower #47
20 Acres in Organic production
