The 2nd Annual Pie Festival was a tasty treat on an ordinary Wednesday in East Nashville. Customers enjoyed more summer produce with the local farmers at the market, while the community gathered to see who gets the bragging rights for winning the best tasting pie! Children were entertained with games, crafts and face painting while live music greeted customers who had dinner with one of our food trucks.
We had 24 entries in the categories of savory and sweet. Thank you to our judges, Jill Melton of Edible Magazine, Laura Wilson of Nashville Grown and Rebecah Boynton, East Nashville Pie Festival Founder, and event coordinator at the Nashville Farmers Market. We know that they had a tough time tasting all those pies and the decision was not an easy one!
After many tastings, the winners were announced and the crowd was able to sample all the entries!

1st Place in Savory: Celeste Davidson for her Tomato Pie
