The Small Market In West Virginia Boasting World-Famous Pie Is The Sweetest Day Trip Destination
Is it worth an entire day trip to Wheeling, West Virginia just for some pie? If it’s pie from Oliver’s Pies in Centre Market, then the answer is a resounding YES. It has, after all, been named the best pie in West Virginia. Hit the road, toad. We’re heading on the sweetest day trip in West Virginia. We need a piece of that pie.
The best pie in West Virginia almost wasn't.
The Oliver family of Wheeling, West Virginia didn't set out to open a pie shop. They sort of stumbled into it by accident trying to raise money for unique family opportunity.
But those original, home baked fund-raising pies, sold to friends, family, and neighbors, were so good that requests kept pouring in for more. And more.
Eventually, the Olivers' home kitchen couldn't keep up with the demand, and Oliver's Pies, a small shop in Wheeling's Centre Market, was born.
What makes Oliver's Pies the best in West Virginia? They are homemade the old-fashioned way, using only the freshest, handmade ingredients and secret family techniques handed down from generations of pie-making Olivers.
The fruit pies are loaded with fresh, never-from-a-can fruit. The creme pies are piled high with homemade puddings and custards - no boxed pudding mixes allowed in this shop! And Oliver's Pies also sells rich, delicious cheesecakes.
Plus, Oliver's Pies features an open kitchen so that interested customers can watch the entire pie-making process as it happens - and take a big whiff of the delicious smell of the fresh-baked results!
Oliver's Pies sells pie by the slice straight from their bakery counter, or you can order whole pies or half-pies with some advance notice.
Come visit this family-owned pie shop, try a slice or two of pie, and taste for yourself why this is some of the best pie in the Mountain State.
