Do you think you have what it takes to be the top pie baker in town?

Now's the chance to show them what you got with the Oak Park Farmers Market's inaugural pie-baking contest.

The Pie Bake-Off will take place at the farmers market – held every Saturday in the parking lot of Pilgrim Church, 460 Lake St. – from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Sept. 2.

Judges will pick the winner based on taste, appearance and creative use of farmers market ingredients, according to a press release from the village of Oak Park.

The deadline for pre-registration is Aug. 22, and contestants can submit entry forms at the farmers market or via email to novackgottshalls@bellsouth.net. Contestants must be at least 16 years of age.

Registration for the contest is free.

The village notes in the press release that only 15 entries – which will be selected using a lottery system – will be allowed to participate.

Winners will receive a ribbon and merchandise gift from the farmers market.
