*** DON'T FORGET -- WE'RE MOVING ***
*** SUNDAY JULY 23 the Market will be held in the Hospital Parking Lot ***
On July 23, the Market will temporarily re-locate to the parking lot of the Medstar Montgomery Medical Center. The lot is located immediately to your right as you turn into the main entrance of the complex. This is only temporary - we'll be back to our regular space on July 30.
What to expect this Sunday for our annual move to the parking lot at Medstar Montgomery:
Location: the parking lot of Medstar Montgomery Medical Center, 18101 Prince Philip Drive, across the street from our usual site
Parking: Adjacent to the temporary Market site in the parking garage, or at the Medical Building across from the Market look for signs
Music:We'll have music, the kids' tent will be up and running, and there will be a chef's demonstration. However, no crafters will be present. We'll have about 45 of our regular vendors (farmers, food vendors, and artists).
WE'LL BE BACK AT OUR USUAL LOCATION JULY 30TH.

*** MARKET NOTICES ***
The results of the pie contest are in, and the winners are:
1st Place: Larry Willett, Rhubarb Custard Pie
2nd Place: Lisa Carbin, Pecan Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pie
3rd Place: Jennifer Tantum, Lemon Chess Pie
People's Choice: Emma Grothe, Blueberry Pie with Cinnamon Crumb Topping
What a fun time!! There were 17 pies entered, so the judges had a tough time deciding on the winners. And all of the Market customers won -- because they were able to buy pieces of all of the pies.
Many thanks to Judy Newton and her volunteers at the Chef's Tent. Those fun-loving, pie-eating judges - Harry Montgomery, Michael Brand, Cindy Mullikin of Mully's Brewery and Trung Ngugun of Dalat Deli.
We'd also like to thank Olney Theatre Center and Mully's Brewery for donation of prizes.
