Market’s pie contest coming up on Aug. 21

Elisabeth Worrell
Glenwood Downtown Market

Bakers, get out those cookbooks and start thinking about what pie you will enter in the fourth annual pie contest on Aug. 21. There are three categories — fruit, cream and exotic. The pies should be delivered by 3:30 p.m., judging will take place at 4p.m. and sales by the slice will start at 5p.m. For more information call 618-3650.

Visit Maggie at her Magpies booth and take one of her delicious pies home with you (and maybe get an idea for your pie entry!). Her pie shop is located at 65 Market St. in Eagle, and you can also visit her at to see her menu and order your holiday pies early.

Make sure to visit with our farmers this week at the market. The owners and their helpers are very knowledgeable and are happy to share information about the varieties of vegetables and fruits that they grow and would love to know about your favorites.

Musical artist, vocalist, arranger and composer Vid Weatherwax will begin his performance at 5:30 p.m. Vid spent 40 years traveling and gigging in original and cover bands but has chosen to spend the last 14 years as a solo performer, arranging and sequencing all his material. Stop by and enjoy his R&B, jazz and soul performance. You can stop right into Sunlight Sports and thank them for sponsoring this week’s music performance. The Stage Door Theater will be performing before the music begins this week, so try and get there early.

Divine Thyme Catering will be providing the cooking demonstration this week starting at 5:30 p.m. Cathryn’s background includes extensive yoga study, catering and work as a personal chef. Her life philosophy includes a high value around sustainability, commitment to the use of local, thoughtfully grown food sources, and a diet that supports a vibrant lifestyle. It is important for her to present food that optimally supports the body and is highly pleasing to the eye. Cate intends to shop from the vendors at the market on the day of the demo and assemble a fresh salad with an accompanying dressing and perhaps a pesto or bruschetta spread for bread. She wants to show people how simple it is to shop the market and go home with the finest, freshest and the most healthy fare available. Cooking demonstrations are sponsored by The Pullman and Town restaurants.

Thank you, Glenwood Springs Tourism Board, 1st Bank, SGM among other sponsors for helping to make the 2014 Glenwood’s Downtown Market a fun place to be on Tuesdays. Come join your friends and neighbors and out-of-town visitors in Centennial Park at Ninth and Grand every Tuesday from 4-8 p.m.
