Jersey Fresh Peach Festival at Riverview Market

Next Sunday, August 2nd, the Riverview Farmers Market will be participating in the 4th Annual Perfect Peach Pie Contest!

This is a statewide contest run by the New Jersey Peach Promotion Council that several markets throughout NJ participate in. The winners at each market go on to participate in a second and final round for a grand prize of $300.
In order to participate, you must register by 11:30am on the day of the contest. You must be an amatuer baker, not a professional, and your dish must be a home-baked peach pie or peach cobbler made with Jersey peaches. The judging criteria will include overall appearance, crust puffiness and color, arrangement of peaches (in open-top pies), filling color, aroma, filling taste, and crust taste and prizes have been donated by local businesses including NJ Beer Company and The Corkscrew.

In addition to the peach pie contest, the market will have all its usual vendors, live music, and there will be peach-themed activities for kids. The market runs from 10am-3pm.
