You shop at Whole Foods. That is the problem! The apple pies at The Fresh Market have lots of apples in them!

I actually don't buy a lot there. Actually, I only go there for the seafood. It's fresher there and they have a better selection and they have whole fish. Seafood is better there than other local markets.

But that's about all I buy there. Certainly not pie anymore Smile

I agree. A bit spendy..... but it's fresh....Try some of their seafood chowders......the ones on the hot soup bar from Keys fisheries. They have a stone crab chowder that is excellent as well as a corn and crab chowder also excellent.

if you can find some Northern Spy's they make a fantastic pie,

I usually find some at Greenwood Gourmet Grocery, on 250 just outside Crozet


I will check them out. It is still too early for local apples except Ginger Gold which ripens the end of August.

Also there is the old packing shed, now Rockfish Country Store at the foot of the mountain. I haven't been in there in years.

If you have Amazon Prime, I wonder what the return policy is for slightly used but wholly unsatisfying Whole Foods pies?

(hint: Amazon bought out Whole Foods)

Consumer Reports rated them # 1, stating that they would fall apart because they had no gelatin or filler glueing them together; the filling for these fruit pies was primarily fruit!

They were really delicious. I have not found that brand for sale here in Florida, but this thread inspired me to do a little search. The company appears to still be active, they have a website, and I just used the "Contact Us" form to inquire about where to buy their products in the Orlando area.


Chef Pierre made THEE most wonderful apple dumpling. A little vanilla ice cream and heaven was within reach.

Not a fan of vanilla ice cream here, but some regular cream is great, or a wedge of cheddar cheese.

This thread inspired me to do an internet search for Chef Pierre. Found their website and contacted them to find out where their products are sold in the Orlando area. No joy. They don't do retail any more. They do institutional supply. Maybe I can have myself declared some sort of ... no, that won't work. Frown

I never heard of "Sharp Shopper." Googled, looks like all the locations are in PA and VA. Frown

You could fly up to the Waynesboro Airport and have Sharp Shopper bring over a few cases.

They buy over runs of products. They have Cheez It for $1.49, lean ground turkey 93/7% for $1.69 which sells for $4.00+ at other places.

I got an apple pie from Costco today. Slightly smaller in size than the average manhole cover and loaded with apples. It had perhaps just a little too much cinnamon but was very good.

This is the one I make for the holidays. Yes, it can be difficult for me, but IT LOOKS LIKE THE PICTURE!

Best-ever apple pie
