The Grand Valley Pie Company, originally in Palisade, recently moved into one of the retail spaces at 545 North Avenue and offers not just dessert and fruit pies, but a whole lot more. While the selection of pies isn't infinite like Pi, you may still have a hard time deciding on which one to take home.
Those looking for dessert decadence can try one of the creampies, or the nutty sweetness of a pecan pie. Don't need a whole pie? They also have mini pies and hand pies.
Also, there are Savory Saturdays where a specialty pie is featured. Since this Saturday is St. Patrick's Day, Maggie, the owner of the shop, says she's preparing corned beef and cabbage savory pies.
In addition to the North Avenue store and online ordering, Grand Valley Pie Co. will be taking their pies on the road to local Farmers Markets and Food Truck Fridays.
