Butter! Eggs! Antiques! Pie! Action!

butter and eggs for pieNothing says “Petaluma” like Butter and Egg Days! Like we say every year, we are proud to use butter AND eggs from right here in Petaluma (unlike a certain other business that uses eggs from Iowa and says “Lovin’ is Local”).  This is a great weekend to ride your bike or walk downtown as many streets will be closed and parking will be tight. Fortunately, many of our pies are easy to eat while strolling through our quaint little town. The Butter and Egg festival and parade are on Saturday. The parade starts at noon and is right outside our door.

The Antique Faire is on Sunday from 8am to 4pm just up the stairs from our shop on Kentucky St. We will likely be cleaned out on Saturday, so you can be sure all the pies will be extra fresh on Sunday (no antique pies, folks) for your enjoyment).

Hey, check out these cool Lemon Meringue Cookies! The meringue is crunchy and the lemon “yolk” is sweet and tart, and what do you know? They are gluten free-ish (we are not a gluten free facility).

Friday is Pie Day April 10

organic strawberries at Petaluma Pie CompanyHey Everybody, it’s Friday again! Spring is still here and this time of year is all about strawberries, which are the only new fruit we have around at the moment. We have Strawberry Cream pie, which is much like our Banana Cream pie, our vanilla pastry cream with fresh organic fruit sliced up inside, topped with organic Straus whipped cream. If you are in a more wholesome, old fashioned mood, Strawberry Rhubarb (yes, we have rhubarb!) is the thing for you and – remember the à la mode! You can top it with a scoop of Straus organic vanilla ice cream!

As always, you can drop in and see what we have but if you really really want a pie of your own, your best bet is to order ahead on our website or call the shop at 707-7mmm-PIE (766-6743).

We are open until 9 on Friday and Saturday!

Happy Holidays!

So much happening this weekend. Happy Passover and Happy Easter everybody! We’ve got Matzo Ball Soup and Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and so much more for you! If we are lucky, we may even get some rain! If you are up early on Saturday morning, check out the Total Lunar Eclipse! Yes, we are open on Easter Sunday. If you don’t have your pie already ordered, get it in soon, we’ll be very busy!

Pies of the future. Quince is in full bloom right now.

Hi Everybody, we are just about recovered from last week’s Super Pi Day extravaganza. We expected it to be busy, but not THAT busy! Thanks again!
It has been feeling like spring for quite a while now, but today, Friday (always pie day) March 20th is the Spring Equinox! For your added enjoyment there will also be a solar eclipse (not visible from here, though) and a SUPER MOON. Looks like the weather is going to be nice and spring like (no rain, though), so come on down and celebrate spring with pie! We are open until 9 on Friday and Saturday.

Saturday is Pi Day!

That’s right, everybody, Saturday is 3-14-15. Not only is it Pi Day, it’s Super Pi Day, which occurs only once in a century! And of course, at Petaluma Pie, you don’t need to choose between soup or pie, you can have them both!

We will be holding our annual Pi(e) Ku poetry contest with prizes and everything.   Winners will be announced on 3-14 at 1:59 pm. Deadline to enter is noon. Read all about it and enter your poem online here or come into the store and put pen to paper.

We have been working furiously to make enough pie for everyone, but we expect to be quite busy. We hope you’ll understand if we run out of your favorite (if you didn’t order ahead).

With music, merriment and pi, there will be a good time all a – round!

Happy International Women’s Day

Hey everybody,  it’s International Women’s Day!
The official United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2015 is “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!”

Don’t just picture it, do something.  It is startling that we still have a wage gap between men and women and that women are still underrepresented in business and government leadership in our country in the year 2015.

P.S. come on down and eat pie!
