A new tradition? Photo by Sonya Yruel Photography 

If you are getting married this year, congratulations! If you need pie for your wedding, you’d better start planning now. Pretty much as soon as the new year started, we have been getting a huge influx of wedding inquiries. We can only do so many each weekend, so you’ll want to stake a claim as soon as you can.

Where to begin? It’s easy, just go to our website and fill out our handy Event Inquiry form and we will get in touch with you to answer all of your wedding pie questions.

Happy Fall!

As you may have noticed, it’s autumn! Over the coming weeks and months,our summer fruit pies will be slowly falling off the menu as we bring back pumpkin, sweet potato and pecan. Because we are in California, we will still have some summer fruits for a while longer but don’t be surprised if you walk in and an old favorite like peach is gone.

We’ve got hot cider and hot chocolate, pear pie and more!  Look out for upcoming holiday pie tastings, too…

Pies of Summer

Some of you are even back in school! That is right, it is the tail end of summer. If you want to hang on to that summer feeling just a little longer, we’ve got you covered. While we have gotten word that peaches will be ending a few weeks earlier than normal this year, summer fruit pies are still happening, like peach, nectarine blackberry, triple berry and strawberry rhubarb. And we have ice cream. If you are feeling more autumnal, we’ve got apples again and we even have apple pecan crumble with salted caramel. Pear pie is just around the corner.

Order Your Pie for the Fourth of July!

Red White and Blue PieHey Everybody! Fourth of July weekend is coming right up. Summer fruit is happening in a big way, so we have so many delicious flavors to choose from (but not apple). Peaches, apricots, nectarines, rhubarb, berries, oh my!

We expect to be very busy and selling out of pies, so we highly encourage you to plan ahead and order your pies. It’s easy! Just go to http://www.petalumapies.com and you can take care of it in your pajamas. Or call us at 707-766-3743, that’s 707-7MMM-PIE. Or just stop by the shop and place your order in person.

We will be closing early at 4:30pm on July 4th.

Say Goodbye To Apple Pie

Gravenstein Apples from Marshall Ranch in Sebastopol

Gravenstein Apples start in late July!

Hi Everybody,

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.

Fall!

]It sure doesn’t feel like it, but it is now fall. That’s right,Wednesday September 23 is the Autumnal Equinox. And like the summer, some of our favorite summer pie ingredients are soon departing as well. That means more apple, pear, pecan, pumpkin and more.

Hey, it’s also National Great American Pot Pie Day, so come and get some pot pie!

Get your pie for the Fourth of July!
