Harvest Market

Join us for the Harvest Market, final market of the outdoor season!

We’ve got a few exciting things planned to make sure we go out in style. In addition to a theme-y photo booth and well dressed vendors, we’re bringing you for the first time ever

A PIE EATING CONTEST

Do you like pie? Then email today to enter yourself in the pie eating contest!

Guidelines:

– Pies will be provided by HSFM.
– Eaters must be gluten, dairy, and sugar tolerant.
– Eaters will be asked to make a minimum donation of $5, to be paid on the day-of.
– Eaters must register by emailing katie.h@hillhurstsunnyside.org no later than Monday, October 5th. Spots are limited!
– Eaters must be present at market no later than 4:15pm on October 7th, to be ready for the event at 5pm. Late eaters risk losing their spot.
– Hands will remain behind eaters’ backs. Putting hands to the mouth or pie is grounds for disqualification.
– The first eater to eat their entire pie will be awarded a ribbon, photographed and featured in the November issue of the highly esteemed Hillhurst Sunnyside Voice.
– Water and napkins will be provided by HSFM.
– Spectators will be given the opportunity to purchase a ticket to guess which eater will win. 50% of the money collected will be given to one of those who guess correctly, and 50% will go toward beautifying the garden beds in the market lot next spring with native wildflowers and grasses.

Winning entrants will be awarded a ribbon and featured in the November issue of The Hillhurst Sunnyside Voice!
