Across the Lake and Around a New Corner

You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.

A. A. Milne

We know hundreds of people drive across the Causeway Bridge to the Northshore everyday - no big deal, second nature, just a commute.  

Our trip across that mighty long bridge was something different.

Something deliberate. Something difficult.  Something fun.

We had a bonafide petite adventure traveling around the Northshore with sample boxes of pies and tarts.

It’s not always easy to go into uncharted territory, i.e., a new coffee shop or grocery. But that’s the way ya’ do it.

The Southern Hotel in downtown Covington is all the things it should be. Can’t wait for a fabulous hotel guest to wake to a Double Cherry Hand Pie. Life can be so elegant.

We nosed around all the tried and true haunts.

And finally wound up in Madisonville at the darling Abita Roasting Company, across from the Tchefuncte River.

We made our rounds in the city, as well.  Canseco’s in Old Metairie and Poeyfarre Market in the CBD.  

Windowsill Pies is nearing our third anniversary.  So much has happened in three years, most notably becoming a supplier of deliciousness at Whole Foods Market. The two of us, by each other’s side each day - rolling, lining, pinching, whipping, stirring, mixing, garnishing - making it happen. We pushed ourselves this week, got out there and made exciting new connections. Now fingers crossed that these businesses place their first order!

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Head out to Whole Foods (Veterans or Broad) if you’re in New Orleans, or Acquistapace’s if you’re on the North Shore, and treat the gang to some delicious summertime Windowsill Pies!

We’re Closing a Door But Opening Another Window
Saturday, April 5, will be our last time at the Covington Farmers Market.  

Friday, April 11 is our first day at Whole Foods Market in Metairie!


It’s been a wonderful year getting to know all the fabulous North Shore customers at the Covington Farmers Market. Being at the market has very much helped us develop our baby pies and tarts that we are now selling at Whole Foods Market and at a few coffee shops.
The Market has been nothing short of fantastic for us. We have forged so many relationships that we will miss, and have met so many lovely people who are rooting us on. So it’s after much deliberation that we have come to the hard decision that, in order to grow, we must refocus our energy. We ask that, even though we will be moving on from the Covington Market, you continue with us on this journey. We wouldn’t have gotten where we are without you.  

Look for our Spring Menu at two Whole Foods Market locations: Broad Street and Veterans Boulevard. We hope to be at a North Shore grocery soon. Check facebook to keep up with our sampling demo dates at both stores. 
Getting a Windowsill Pie keeps getting easier.

We are so proud and honored to be part of Whole Foods Market.  We’ve launched at the brand new Broad Street store.  Look for us at the Veterans locale soon!  

It’s been a great week.  We want to offer a deep thank you to all our fans who went to the WFM bakery and asked about us.  The team members keep saying how popular we are.  Really, we just have great, supportive friends.  

Full Steam Ahead!

 

We’ve been looking forward to sharing this news for a long time. Finally, it’s official — Windowsill Pies is in Whole Foods at two locations! Both the Veterans store and the new Broad Street store (opening Tuesday, February 4!) will carry our bite-size “sweet bites” in the cake case and hand pies in the pastry case. 

Soon they’ll also carry the 6-inch and 9-inch sizes that made us famous. Ask the bakery department about them! 

We’ve come so far in these two and a half years, to see all our hard work manifest in such a grand way is exhilarating. At the same time, we know it’s just another beginning! So don’t let our little handmade jewels remain behind glass. Come out and experience Windowsill Pies at Whole Foods Market!

Check facebook to keep up with our sampling demo dates at both stores. 

As Mitch Landrieu says, “Let’s keep it rolling.”
