You may have heard that there’s a bit of a Thanksgiving fiasco this year. From labor shortages to supply shortages, Thanksgiving staples will be a little harder to put on the table and maybe a little more expensive. With that being said, there’s still a lot of bakeries doing their best to bake up delicious seasonal pies to make your Thanksgiving one for the books. Here are 5 of our favorites here in Charlotte, each listed with how you can order and the last day you can send in your orders.
