PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Farmers Market kicked off the holiday season Saturday with a pre-Thanksgiving apple pie contest.

The Farmer's Market is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays at The Gateway pavilion in downtown Port Angeles.

Rain or shine, the market will be open each Saturday, said Cynthia Warne, market manager.

“In five years, the only time we have ever shut down was for Christmas,” she said.

Saturday's pie contest resulted in two winners.

Five entries

With five entries in a judged class as well as a people's choice class, a pie baked by Cyndi Ross of Port Angeles handily won both categories.

Ross was awarded a $25 Farmers Market gift certificate and a blue ribbon for her judged win, along with a blue ribbon for her people's choice award, Warne said.

Katie Boyd, also of Port Angeles, received a ribbon for her second-place win in the people's choice category.

Warne said that Boyd's non-traditional pie was notable for its unusual spices, including caraway seeds.

In December, the Farmer's Market will continue celebrating the holiday spirit with carolers and children's storytelling, Warne said.

Winter means the end of fresh fruit, but there are still plenty of locally grown root vegetables and leafy green vegetables.

Local meats also are available at the market, Warne said.
