Best Berry Pie Contest 2012 Rules and Entry Requirements

  • All pies must be entered no later than 11 AM on July 28 2021.
  • If you have any questions, or wish to pre-register your pie contacts Manager Sarah at
  • Once you enter your pie in the contest you are agreeing that James Bay Market has the right to use the pie for tasting, sampling, judging and fundraising.

Pie Champion bragging rights and prizes to be won.  Good Luck!
