Volunteers are baking pies made from scratch as a fundraiser

The Sooke Fall Fair is having a Pie Market on May 30 from 10-2 pm. at the Sooke Community Hall at 2037 Sheilds Road.

We make up all the pies from scratch, with no canned fillings. We will have sour cherry, apple, blackberry, blueberry, lemon or pumpkin pies. Fresh pies will be $10 and we will have gluten free pies as well for $15.

We will be serving refreshments and we will have our regular vendors for our market, who sell everything from from reused and recycled goods to needlecraft and essential oils and more.

Our 2015 Sooke Fall Fair catalogue will be available soon and our theme is “Embracing Soil and Light.” There will be many fun events around this theme, so watch for updates. We will also be selling raffle tickets for our  amazing quilt Building Community One Stitch at a Time. Other raffle prizes include a $250 gift certificate to Home Hardware, a combined grocery certificate of $150 from Western Foods and Village Market  and two framed lithographs donated by the Elrose family valued at $150 each. Tickets are $2 each. You will see folks around the local stores selling tickets.

Be sure to continue to invest in our fair. We love your support. The Sooke Fall Fair holds a market at the Sooke Community Hall on the last Saturday of every month.

This year’s fall fair takes place on September 12 and 13 at the Sooke Community Hall.
