In the centre of the hall apple varieties were on display. 

On the periphery of the hall there were all kinds of vendors from food to heirloom tomato seeds, to fruit trees and of course our table of mason bee homes and more.

 

Harry Burton- Thanks Harry for putting on a great show every year!

Busy traffic at Beediverse mason bee product table.

A piece of apple pie please.

It  always amazes me to view all the apple varieties at the Saltspring apple festival, and then eat an apple slice with a known apple variety! 

Awesome!

Here are a few that attracted my attention.

 

 

   

 

 

 

The Best Tasting Apple Competition at the Salt Spring Fall Fair, Sunday 10:30 AM at the Demo Tent.
Come on out and have some fun. YOU BE THE JUDGE.
1) We need you to vote and rate all the apples for your favourite. 80 people randomly chosen from the crowd will be asked to taste and vote.
Then we just tabulate to see which apple gets the most votes.
2) I also need some helpers to help cut the apples into bite sized pieces, so that people only have to taste using a tooth pick. Just come to the Demo Tent about 10 AM.
You can also do the tasting and voting as well, so work and play at the same time.
