Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s officially pie season! Though, let’s face it, we don’t need a holiday to tell us it’s ok to eat pie. I put together a list of some of my favorite pies in town, so you can splurge on the best during this holiday season! But first… some fun pie statistics from Shari’s:
- Pie is so special it has three days: Dec 1st and Jan 23rd are National Pie Days and Mar 14th is Pi Day!
- 1 in 5 Americans claim to have eaten an entire pie by themselves.
- 47% of Americans think of the word “comforting” when they think of pie.
- 9% of Americans eat their pie crust first!
- 18% of Americans say their wife makes the best pie.
- Only 2% of Americans say their husband makes the best pie.

Their pumpkin pie is amazing. Order it by the slice or grab a full pie! While you’re there, grab an almond croissant. You won’t regret it 🙂

“With more gold medals than Ashton Eaton, Shari’s pies are house made from only the top strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and marionberries. Each pie is a combination of locally sourced and other quality ingredients that could only happen here in the Northwest. They are the perfect complement to any of our meals, and a complete show stopper when taken to go!”
