We Only Have “Pies” for You


There’s never a bad time for pie, but we are heading into arguably the best time for pie. Metro Detroit has always had unique pie shops offering sweet, fruity, savory, flaky and every type of pie in between. After you check out these mouth-watering pie shops, be sure to come back in November for our Pie Showdown where we’ll highlight our favorite pies and what makes them perfect for Thanksgiving.

Achatz Handmade Pie Co.

For over 26 years, Achatz Handmade Pie Co. has made it their mission to provide Metro Detroiters with the healthiest and freshest pies around. Their pies are free of toxic agro-chemicals and they work with farms that practice good environmental procedures. Their seasonal pie menu includes an Autumn Harvest pie made with pumpkin mousse and candied pecans.

Grand Traverse Pie Company

Grand Traverse Pie Company began as a small pie shop in downtown Traverse City and has grown into a Michigan favorite with many shops across the state. First timers should try their Grand Traverse Cherry Crumb pie which is made with Michigan Montmorency cherries and a toasty crumb topping, or any of their sweet cherry pies. For larger parties, check out their catering menu and wedding pie options.

Availability may be limited at Eastern Market, but you can call for full size pie orders at (313)748-2654.
