,

The St. Catharines Downtown Association and the Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre, in partnership with the City of St. Catharines, are set to take over St. Catharines Farmers Market with a harvest pie festival supporting local charities on Thursday, Oct. 5.

Pie lovers can pre-register to attend this event at no charge at stcatharines.ca/IWantPie. Those who pre-register can submit their registration ticket at the event for a chance to win a free pie.

“We are delighted to partner with the Downtown Association and the Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre as we plan a Harvest Pie Festival for the community. This event will provide a great opportunity for locals to come together and enjoy delicious pies while supporting local charities.”

Deanna Chakarova, community and market coordinator for the City

From noon to 3 p.m., the Harvest Pie Festival will transform Market Square into a delectable paradise, showcasing a delightful array of sweet and savoury pies created by local bakers and small businesses.

Nine-inch family-sized pies will be available for purchase for $25 each, while smaller hand-held four-inch pies will be priced at $15. For each pie sold, a donation of $5 will be made towards supporting a local charity of the baker or vendor’s choice. Scotiabank is generously matching all donations.

A free selfie booth with a fall backdrop on site will add to the festive atmosphere. The market’s regular floral vendor will be extending services to include a build-your-own centrepiece workshop for the upcoming holiday weekend. Local band The O’Deadlys will take the market stage from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. providing live entertainment.

Visitors are encouraged to tour the market to visit all the vendors that will be open that day. Find out more at stcatharines.ca/PieFestival.
