Query: Cherry Pie, Fresh Cherries, Northern NJ or NYC Wed, 07/7/10 11:24 AM (permalink)
Does anybody know a bakery that makes cherry pie from fresh cherries (as opposed to canned or frozen) in Northern New Jersey or New York City? I've never had fresh cherry pie before, and have gotten an urge to try it. I know there's some place out in Long Island that does it, but a day trip to satisfy an urge is not really what I'm looking for.

    Hey Bart, there are some places in NYC that make cherry (and sour cherry ) pies.

    1.)  Bubby's
    http://bubbys.com/index.php/Store/
    Excellent Sour Cherry pie if expensive.  $7 a slice but I do indulge in it every so often as it is one of the best I have ever tried.  I don't have 100% confirmation that these are fresh cherries but after having eaten this a few times I am very certain that they are fresh.

    2.)  First Prize Pies
    http://www.firstprizepies.com/shop.html
    I'm not sure if she makes a cherry pie, but she does do seasonal berry pies so it might be worth an email.  I met Allison a few weeks back and tried her S'Mores and Bourbon Ginger Pecan pies which were terrific!

    3.)  Four and Twenty Blackbirds
    http://birdsblack.com/?page_id=39
    A new place in NYC that I have wanted to try.

    4.)  Pies-N-Thighs
    http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/pies-n-thighs/menu
    Another place with sour cherry pie

    Best to call ahead on these to verify that they use fresh cherries before making the trip.  Hope this is helpful.

      Village Farmer Bakery in Delaware Water Gap, PA; right across the NJ border, a couple hundred yards off of I-80.

        Looks interesting, and the websites implies fresh cherries.

        Her website tempts me to visit one of the farmers' market where she shows up, even if she doesn't have cherry pie.
        3.)  Four and Twenty Blackbirds

        Definitely on a path in which I sometimes drive. This is going to the top of the list.

        4.)  Pies-N-Thighs
        http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/pies-n-thighs/menu

        Forget the cherry pie; the whole restaurant looks worth a detour across the Williamsburg bridge while heading into Brooklyn! Definitely going to look up reviews.

          Awesome!  Just check out the prices ahead of time.  I know a lot of my family and out-of-town friends get sticker shock when they come to visit.

          A few pics of that great Michigan Sour Cherry pie from Bubby's to whet your appetite:

            Sour cherry season is very short, from mid-June to early July.  The cherries go bad very quickly.  For these reasons, it is not likely that one will find fresh cherry pie anywhere.

            Here's an article from the WaPo about them:
