Mobile bakery, Meat Street Pies, produces quality ethnic meat pies... from scratch! When founders, Jonathan and Thea, retired they chose to channel over 40 years of experience in the baking business and open up their own food truck.
“We love what we do, love what we produce and love the people we serve it to,” says Thea. As proud at Baseline Farmers Market for their second year, their favourite part is always “meeting the customers and hearing their rave reviews.”
All Meat Street Pies products are homemade in their beloved kitchen in Avonmore, an Edmonton neighborhood near Mill Creek Ravine. Creations that are available for purchase include Beef and Chicken Pies, Cornish Pasties, Jamaican Patties, Gluten-Free Spinach and Feta Quiche, and Puff Pastry Eccles cakes.
If you’re still craving a meat pie when the summer season is over, you’ll be happy to know that Meat Street Pies produces frozen products so that when the truck isn’t operating— you can swing by their house or a few select local butcher shops and still have access to pies through the winter. The off-season order form to arrange that can be found here.
Beautifully phrased, the couple feels as though they are “selling 'nostalgia' — that folks hadn't had a proper Cornish Pasty since they'd been in England, or a lovely Steak & Cheese Pie since they'd been in Australia,” and Meat Street Pies has been, “touching emotional chords with a lot of people who when they bite into their pie, they have emotions [that remind them of] good things from their childhood.”
