SUMMIT, NJ - As if summer lurking just around the corner was not sweet enough news for Hilltop City residents, now comes word that Summit Downtown Inc. will begin its 'Sunday Funday Contest' series with a doozy -- a Berry Pie Contest -- on June 23 at the Summit Farmers Market.

Amateur bakers are invited to bring their best berry-centric creation to the Summit Farmers Market by 10:45 a.m. All types of berry pies are allowed: mixed berry, strawberry rhubarb, blueberry custard, etc. Pre-registration is encouraged and available by visiting http://bit.ly/sfmberry. Walk-ins are also welcome.

All pies must be made from scratch -- no canned ingredients or boxed mixes are allowed -- and entrants must bring a copy of their recipe to the contest with them. The winners will receive Summit Farmers Market Fun Money to be spent at the market. Judging will begins at 11 a.m.
