And if you're looking to place a pie order instead of making your own, it's time to get a move on. Here are three places in the city that can help to ensure a stress-free, pie-filled holiday.
You may have seen them at Noe Valley's Saturday farmers' market or Off the Grid's picnic in the Presidio, but now San Francisco's pop-up pie shop is bringing organic and sustainably-raised ingredients to you via Thanksgiving pies.
