PopUp Shop’s ‘piemagedon’ is Tuesday as Gainesville-based baker comes to town. They’ve already presold 300 pies?! Also this week: Free gelato scoop Wednesday afternoon at Honeymoon Bakery.

Yup, that’s a Chicken Pot Pie courtesy of the Southern Baked Pie Co. out of Gainesville, popping up in downtown Rome on Tuesday. Facebook photo.

 

Lisa Landry’s “incubator” adjoining Living & Giving, also known as the PopUp Shop, is courting food customers this Tuesday. From 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., “We are having a pie Pop Up in our PopUp Shop … We’re hosting Amanda Wilbanks and The Southern Baked Pie Co. from Gainesville. Her award-winning carmel pecan pie caught Oprah Winfrey’s eye or rather mouth, and was selected as one of Oprah’s favorite things. Her pie company is booming and we thought we would have a fun event and hopefully sell 50-60 pies. We decided to take a few pre orders and we’ve got over 300 pies coming that are prepaid. This obviously caught their attention so our little event is turning into ‘piemagedon.’  Her cookbook will be available and you’ll be able to sign up for the pie of the month club. We’ll draw a name and that person gets a pie a month for a year.”

Take a few minutes to read about the pie company on the company website. It has been in business since 2012 and now ships nationally. An advisory note: These pies are in the $40 range and higher.

The PopUp Shop is in the Merrill Lynch building across the foyer from Living & Giving.

A reminder: free gelato Wednesday at Honeymoon Bakery. They’re celebrating 12 years on Broad Street and, as posted on Facebook, want to celebrate a bit. “We hope you’ll join us next Wednesday, June 12, from noon until 3 p.m. for a gelato party. As a token of our appreciation, we’ll be giving away free single scoop gelatos (cup or cone) to everyone who stops by!”
