It is a rainy Tuesday. The Lunch Bunch is making a trek to Kandi's Pies and Pastries in rural Tracy. Two stops before we get to the pie shop. First at the Amtrak Station to pick up tickets for our train trip to San Francisco on December 19th. Then a stop for breakfast at the Four Corners Café on the outskirts of Tracy.

I first found out about Kandi's Pies from Grandma. Tachella Fruit Stand in Brentwood sells Kandi's frozen pies during the Spring, Summer and Fall season. Grandma, who lives about two miles from Tachella's, had been buying Kandi's sugar free pies for a couple of years.

My cousin from Huntington Beach who visits mom often will take back about 5 or 6 pies each visit. Either from the Tracy Farmers Market or the retail store.

From Kandi's web site:
Kandi's Pies and Pastries has been supplying fresh homemade pies and baked goods in the Tracy area for the last twelve years. Located on our farm in Tracy, we have a 1,700-square foot commercial kitchen set among our family’s orchard where we handpick our own fresh fruit to make our pies.

We currently attend the Tracy Farmer's Market every Saturday. It is located on Tenth Street and runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through the end of November. We open the retail shop mid-November for the holiday season. We accept orders for all of your holiday baking needs along with our custom gift baskets.

The retail shop will have all of our regular items along with specialty items, including our fresh cream pies, eclairs, cream puffs, cannolis and our holiday cookies. The shop also has a huge selection of holiday items, including cookie jars, ornaments, musical globes, teapots and specialty teas.
