Pie Contest for Wasatch Co-op Market | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Pie Contest for Wasatch Co-op Market



A good opportunity to kick off the holiday season arrives this Sunday, Nov. 17, as the Wasatch Cooperative Market hosts a pie-baking contest and membership-owner campaign drive. --- The Wasatch Cooperative Market is a full-service, socially and environmentally responsible grocery store focused on selling local, high-quality products at fair-trade prices.

Join me and others from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday for a free pie-baking contest at the Salt Lake Culinary Center (2233 S. 300 East). You can bring a pie to enter into the contest, or just bring your appetite and enthusiasm and help pick winners in multiple pie-baking categories. I'll be joined by food expert Vanessa Chang; KUER's Doug Fabrizio, host of Radio West; Log Haven's Faith Sweeten; and Catalyst publisher Greta Belanger deJong as judges.

In addition, Mollie Snider, chef at the Salt Lake Culinary Center, will present a demonstration on the art of pie making.

The pie-baking contest is also an opportunity to join the Wasatch Cooperative Market, and everyone who signs up as a member-owner at the free event will receive a Co-op T-shirt or tote bag.

The pie-baking contest is free, but we invite you to bring nonperishable food donations for the Utah Food Bank.
