Holidays mean food. Holiday Pie Mania, a pre-Thanksgiving event is held on a November Saturday afternoon at Builders Source Appliance Gallery, is a benefit for The Food Depot, Santa Fe's local food bank. The event offers a great way to secure your holiday pies in advance. Each participating chef makes his or her signature pie for the crowd to sample. Past pies have ranged from variations on pecan and pumpkin to those with New Mexico green chile to chocolate confections and beyond. You never know what these creative bakers will come up with and that's half the fun. The highlight of the afternoon is the pie auction. The gathered pie-eaters get into the spirit so bidding can be brisk, but it's for a good cause. Each chef produces one pie that is sold on the spot and two that the winners can order for the holidays.
1608 Pacheco Street
Santa Fe, NM 87505
- Holiday Attractions: "If you want to buy a pie to take home with you or bid on a "future pie" for the holidays, arrive early and scope out the offerings before the auction and pick your favorite(s). As with any auction, decide what your top offer is and stick with it."
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: Holiday Pie Mania, a festive seasonal food event, comes at a time when things are quiet in Santa Fe. If you're here, check it out.
