Best Pie in RI?

RhubarbPudd Jul 28, 2009 02:04 PM

Sorry for the rhyming title... Where can you buy really great pie in Rhode Island? It can be from a restaurant or a farm stand or a bakery. I actually bought a great pie from Eastside Marketplace a few years ago that was mango and strawberry, a combo I'd never had (but which works!)... but I'm sure there are sublime pies out there that I don't know about. Thanks!

        Schartner Farms - best in RI. The strawberry rhubarb is my favorite unless I'm having the apple pie which is then my favorite.

          Schatner totally agree they also make a good Blueberry pie. The crust I think is made with Lard or partial lard because of its flakyness. Tyhey sell a ton of them good on a nice chilled November Sunday Afternoon.

            Schatners also has great jam and lots of their own vegetables. If you garden, a perfect place to get plants. They even sell garlic scapes which was new to me this year.
