Three Babes Bakeshop





Lenore Estrada, along with kitchen and market staff.


Growing up in the Central Valley, Lenore and Anna met in the third grade and, as teenagers, they baked pies to give away to their friends. Years later, they decided to start a pie-making business together with the goal of supporting local farms. They launched with a pie delivery service and a weekly pop-up out at a local café. Their pie offerings change seasonally, and all pies are made by hand, a labor-intensive process. Anna stepped away from the business in 2018.


The Babes source liberally from local farms, including Old Dog Ranch, Hidden Star Orchards (their hometown friends and neighbors), Devoto Gardens, Yerena Farms, Balakian Farms, Happy Quail Farms, Frog Hollow Farm, and G.L, Alfieri, among others. All pastry ingredients are organic, down to the sugar, baking powder, cream, eggs, and flour, which is locally milled at Giusto’s.

Fun Fact

Lenore and Anna estimate that they have made 300 unique varieties of pie, but they’ve streamlined their rotation to 20 to 30 of their finest.
