New at Wheatsville

New raw foods vendor alert: Wheatsville now carries Living Intentions! This cool company has been producing fun and innovative raw food products since 2008, and we’re excited to offer their new raw cereals, flours, and salad ‘boosters’. Read on for more about Living Intentions, and everything else new at Wheatsville this week.

Austinites and mother-daughter team Kit Seay and Amanda Wadsworth Bates have been baking pies together for years. Pie was a standard dessert at dinnertime at their house and everyone had their favorite; the idea for Tiny’s Tiny Pies came from the kids wanting to take an individual piece of pie in their lunch sacks to school. Tiny Pies are the original tiny hand-held pie-- just like grandma used to make… only much, much, smaller. Tiny Pies are made from old family recipes with the highest quality all-natural ingredients sourced from local farmers markets when possible. You can eat them without utensils and they taste great either hot or cold. New savory versions Spinach & Ricotta and Potato Leek are available in 1/2 pint Mason jar pies in the frozen food section; heat in a conventional oven or toaster oven at 350 degrees until warm.
