Get it while you can!

Getting ready for the weekend #sweet #pie #dessert #peaches #fresh #fruit #strawberry #petalumapie
We still have summer fruits, but we are getting word that peaches and nectarines will end earlier this year and our rhubarb is in short supply. As September marches on, we will see our fruit pie selection dwindle and we will see more pumpkin, sweet potato, apple, quince, figs and pear! We are a little early for meyer lemon, though. For the moment, we still have plenty of delicious summer fruit! Hopefully we can stretch the rhubarb so everyone can get some.

Heirloom Expo 2014

Piles of Squarsh!

Hey Everybody, it’s the fourth annual National Heirloom Exposition, and it is happening up in Santa Rosa at the fairgrounds for three this week starting Tuesday September 9th. There will be speakers, animals, vegetable, exhibits and, of course, food vendors, including Petaluma Pie! It is organized by our friends over at the Seed Bank (Baker Creek Seed Company). If you are interested in food, farming, gardening, etc. you should come check it out! Tickets are $10 for a day or $25 for the whole three day event. Kids 17 and under are free! And remember, we’ll be there, so you won’t miss out on pie.

Labor Day Weekend

first labor day parade nycHey Everybody, it’s Labor Day Weekend, and we will be laboring all weekend long, including Monday, for you!

Friday, as usual, we will be at the Occidental Farmers Market from 4 until dusk. We are still open until 9 on Friday and Saturday in the store. We expect to be busy, so if you need a particular kind of pie, please order online or call the store at 707-766-6743 (7MMM-PIE) as many people have already done.

We still have many summer fruits, like berries, rhubarb, peaches and more, with fall fruits like apples and pears coming in. It is a great time for pie!

Taste of Petaluma This Saturday

Hey Everybody, It’s the 9th Annual Taste of Petaluma this Saturday Aug. 23, 2014, 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM. This year we are once again paired with Petaluma Hills Brewery and offering a taste of our Jamaican Beef Patty, a curried meat pie made with grass fed beef.

Here is a special discount offer on tickets to sample the treats of over 60 of Petaluma’s finest chefs, food purveyors, wineries and breweries.

In other pie news, you probably have only the rest of this week to catch our
Gravenstein Apple Pie, as the season is ending quickly this year and we will be switching to Red Romes shortly. We just picked our first asian pears, so expect to see yet another taste of autumn later this week. Many of our summer fruit pies are still going strong, so even though some folks are starting school already, you can still taste summer.

Did we mention Gravensteins?

gravenstein applesHey Everybody, it is August already! You may not have noticed but we have had organic Gravenstein apples from Marshall Ranch in Sebastopol for about a week. The Gravenstein season is only about a month long and then we switch to the next variety because while they are delicious, Gravensteins are not good storage apples. If you really want to celebrate the season, check out the Gravenstein Apple Fair next weekend in Sebastopol. We won’t be there but it is sure to be fun.

In other pie news, the peaches and nectarines are really super delicious right now, we have elderberries and blackberries and blueberries galore! Don’t forget about strawberry rhubarb and all the cream pies and savory pies. While it is cooling off slightly, it never hurts to add some organic Straus vanilla ice cream to your pie (well maybe not cheeseburger pie…).

We are open Sunday until 6, Monday through Thursday till 7 and Friday and Saturday until 9 (during the summer). Come on down!

Hey Everybody, it’s Friday again! We are open until 9 tonight and Saturday night. We will also be at the Occidental Farmers Market from 4 to 8 ish tonight. It is super summer fruit time at Petaluma Pie. We continue to have delicious local organic blueberries from Duckworth Family Farm, local blackberries from the pie garden and peaches and nectarines from Chris Gertz (find him at the Wednesday and Saturday Petaluma Farmers Markets). We have word from Eric Marshall in Sebastopol that we may be getting the first Gravenstein apples in about a week. In the meantime, we just started picking the first of the Elderberries, which will go into our Peach and Elderberry pies later in the weekend!

Friday is Pie Day – Blueberries!

We have blueberries coming out of our ears! We are so lucky to have tons of local blueberries from Serres Ranch up in Laytonville and Duckworth Organic Farm from Sebastopol. We have black and blueberry hand pies, blueberry pie, peach and blueberry crumble, triple berry and maybe we’ll come up with something else for you!
