Where to find homemade pies in Omaha, NE

The Market Basket

Pies can be ordered on their website,

Sweet Magnolias Bake Shop

The Sweet Magnolia Bake Shop is run by a local Nebraska couple. They specialize in from-scratch baked goods and make everything themselves in house. For Thanksgiving, residents can custom order classic and specialty pies via their website, Since they make everything by hand, we suggest ordering your pies as soon as possible to be sure that your order can be accommodated.

Two Birds Bakery

Do you have any family members who have restricted diets? The Two Birds Bakery in Elkhorn, NE can help! They specialize in vegan desserts, including pie, and also have a few gluten free items on their menu. Special orders need to be placed at least 48 hours in advance, though we suggest placing your order as soon as possible if it’s for Thanksgiving Day. Find more information on their website,

The Village Piemaker

Getting pie from The Village Piemaker requires a little more work than purchasing from a bakery as they are frozen and need to be baked at your house. However, we think the extra effort is totally worth it. The pies are made from scratch before being frozen and taste amazing. Plus, you will get a fresh hot pie straight from the oven that your family might think you made. To find the nearest retail outlet that carries The Village Piemaker pies, visit
