Come grab a slice of local pie at REAP Food Group’s 8th Annual Pie Palooza event on November 4th, 2012! REAP’s last event of the season will transform the Goodman Community Center in to a pie-licious paradise. Chefs and bakers from all over town dream up specialsweet and savory pies packed with locally-sourced ingredients, creating a unique Sunday brunch experience for the whole family to enjoy. A ticket to the event covers your choice of two slices of pie, a farm-fresh salad and a beverage. Savory pie choices will appeal to vegetarians and meat lovers alike, while sweet pies will include traditional favorites and innovative creations. With such mouth-watering options as Hickory Nut, Bourbon, Caramel Pie and Roasted Winter Squash, Goat Cheese, and Caramelized Onion Galette, the hardest part is deciding which slices to try!


Previous Pie Paloozas have attracted sell-out crowds and this year is expected to be no different. Advanced tickets are $16, and highly recommended, or $18 at the door if the event is not sold out. (Order online at www.reapfoodgroup.org, or in person at the REAP office at 306 E. Wilson St.) To assure shorter lines and plenty of seating, tickets are sold in four separate time slots. You may purchase a ticket for 9:30-10:30am, 10:30-11:30am, 11:30am-12:30pm, or 12:30-1:30pm. Walkups welcome if slots are not sold out!


If you’re thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, consider purchasing a whole, ready-to-freeze pie. Whole pies will be available for sale at the event until sold out. Hungry for more? Be sure to enter the on-site raffle for a chance to win pie for a year from Sun Prairie’s Market Street Diner and many more great prizes.
