Gravenstein Apples start in late July!
We are on our last box of storage apples. Organic apples from the USA were picked last fall and they have held up under refrigeration, but we have so much summer fruit happening right now and we just don’t agree with buying apples from Argentina or Chile. We will have apple pie again in late July when the local Gravenstein apples start. You can enjoy our various apple pies for maybe the rest of the week.
But what about the fourth of July? In 1776 they didn’t have refrigerators and they didn’t have easy access to fruit from the southern hemisphere. They were actually still fighting the American Revolutionary War, which didn’t end until 1783. Chances are, if they had pie on July 4th, it wasn’t apple.
But do not fret! We have SO MUCH FRUIT! Peaches, Berries, Rhubarb (not really fruit but…), Apricots!!! And just think of how exciting it will be when apples come back.
Gravensteins are here and they are a bit early, but tart and delicious and ready for pie. They will probably go away a bit early as well, but we usually get a good month or so. We just got our first couple of cases from Marshall Ranch in Sebastopol and are working furiously to convert them into pie form for you! You may have noticed apple pie has been off the menu for a bit, but it is starting up again now!

Hey Everybody! Where has the time gone? Chanukah starts Tuesday night, the Winter Solstice is Sunday and Christmas is NEXT THURSDAY. While we don’t really have a deadline to order Chanukah or Solstice pies, we do get slammed for Christmas, so just like Thanksgiving, you must get your order in by the end of the day this Sunday December 21st to pick up Wednesday December 24th before 5pm. You can place your order online, on the phone or in the store. Online orders are best for us as they keep the phone and our staff from getting tied up as we get ready for this busy time. If you need to call it in, our number is 707-766-6743 (7mmm-PIE).
Meanwhile we continue to get much needed rain but don’t let that scare you away from coming downtown. While you are doing your holiday shopping, stop in and warm up with some nice Mushroom Barley Soup and a hot pie with some hot mulled apple cider, hot tea, hot chocolate or hot coffee. Don’t want to leave Petaluma Pie? Do your holiday shopping inside our store! We have fancy chocolate, candles, t-shirts, coffee cups, jewelry, Petaluma Pie gift cards and more! We are hosting a COTS Giving Tree in our shop as well. The tree is decorated with ornaments showing specific gift requests from COTS clients who need a little extra help this holiday season. Choose one and donate a gift.

Sunday November 23rd is the LAST DAY TO ORDER PIE to pick up before Thanksgiving! We will be open Wednesday November 26th until 5pm for pickups and we will make some extra pies for people to buy on a first come, first serve basis, but if you want to get the pie you want, plan ahead and order ahead. For your convenience and ours, we strongly encourage you to order online. If online ordering is not your thing, come in to the shop or call us at 707-766-6743 (7mmm-PIE). Regular store hours are 9am to 9pm Mon – Sat 9-7 Sun.
Hey Everybody! What happened?

Shofar, sho good!
It is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, “L’Shana Tova,” everybody! We do not have a traditional Rosh Hashanah pie for you, but apple would be a good choice (with ice cream and honey?) for a sweet new year. This is what the Shofar sounds like.
