One of the Point Reyes Farmers Market’s most loyal supporters, Edith Gondola, died this past April.
The Market will honor Edith Gondola, one of the Chef’s Booth most loyal supporters, with a pie baking contest to be held on August 9th. Edith came to the the Chef’s demos with her friend May. The duo would arrive early, rain or shine, and always sat in the front row, nodding encouragement and smiling.
Anyone can enter the contest and winners will receive cash prizes for first, second, third and fourth place. A form, available at Toby’s, must be submitted with a $4 entry fee.
The application spells out guidelines for the submission of pies and outlines judging criteria. The judges will possess superior tastebuds and be recruited locally.
