About Dale's Fried Pies

Dale’s Fried Pies started when Dale Mackey began making fried pies for her friends and family in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Encouraged by their positive responses, she decided to build a mobile pie stand to bring to farmer’s markets, festivals and private events.  Dale’s Fried Pies officially opened in August of 2012, and is currently working on a mobile food trailer and a culinary incubator kitchen space.

Dale's Fried Pies wants to make the Knoxville community a more fun and awesome place.  Towards that end, we established the Awesome Squad, which provides grants for young people to pursue creative projects as well as Random Acts of Pie, which delivers pies to deserving nominees in our community.

About Dale

Dale moved to Knoxville in 2008 and plans to stay for a very long time. In addition to pie making, she loves eating, writing, comedy and crafting (even though she hates the word "crafting"). She lives in a little white house with some cats and her dreamy husband Shawn.

Where to Get Them

Dale’s Fried Pies serves at the Wednesday and Saturday Market Square Farmer’s Markets from May - November. You can also find our pies on weekdays Remedy Coffee in the Old City, at various festivals around town and at your next event (if you invite us- we won't crash your party).  For the most up-to-date info on where to find the pie stand, follow Dale’s Fried Pies on Twitter and Facebook, and check the Calendar page here on the website.

We offer office deliveries Monday - Friday, and special occasion deliveries for your gift giving needs.  We also love catering events and making custom pies for customers in the Knoxville area, which are delivered to you frozen or fried.
