To enter your pie in the contest, visit

Your recipe for success is:

  • Your pie must contain at least one ingredient that could be found at a Georgia farmers market.
  • Your ingredients do not have to be in season; so they may be fresh, canned, dried or frozen.
  • Pies may be sweet or savory, hot or cold.
  • There is a limit of one pie entry per person.
  • The recipe for the pie must be included with your entry on the day of the event.
  • Pies should be in place at the Cherokee County Farm Bureau tent by 9 a.m. Aug. 13 at Brown Park, 251 E. Marietta St., Canton.

Pies will be judged on presentation, taste, creative use of ingredients and recipe.

The first-place winner in each category (youth under 18, adult, professional) will compete at the Cherokee Pie Finals in Woodstock on Aug. 27.

Rain or shine, the Canton Farmers Market is held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Saturday through Oct. 15.
