When one thinks of a market, fresh produce and groceries come to mind. However, the pies at Holiday Market are a delightful exception. “We have been in business for over 60 years and have an award-winning bakery. For the holiday season we have pumpkin for $14.99 and pecan pies for $19.99 that can be pre-ordered online in time for Thanksgiving dinner,” says Marketing Manager Hannah Frank. Each pie is made from scratch with butter crusts and the lattice or streusel tops are done by hand, which is a testament to its commitment to quality and flavor.
