Around Town: The Pie Hole is Ready to Roll

Around Town: The Pie Hole is Ready to Roll

The Pie Hole, the former Fayetteville pie truck turned Little Rock mobile eatery, is now officially open for business. “Right now, I’m planning on being at this Saturday’s Hillcrest Farmers Market and then tentatively planning on being at the Westover Farmers Market on Tuesday and then the Westover Wednesday Food Truck Meet-Up,” said owner Lauren Harrison.

The tentative plan, which is subject to change given customer desire, is for the truck to carry 3-4 types of pies at a time, plus one savory pie (quiche or pot pie). The truck will serve pie by the slice to walk-up customers and offer whole pie orders with a two-day advance notice.

Customers should expect a variety of pies, including some of Harrison’s more popular ones, including: coconut cream, oatmeal cream pies with scratch-made marshmallow fluff filling, and chicken pot pie.

And while Harrison is still working on future locations, expect to see The Pie Hole at the Hillcrest Farmers Market, Good Earth Garden Center, Westover Hills Farmers Market and the Westover Wednesday Food Truck Meet-Up.

“My husband is from Hot Springs and I went to college at Hendrix in Conway, so we’re excited to be back in Central Arkansas. Everyone has been so welcoming and supportive of The Pie Hole truck,” said Harrison. She continued, “Before we moved here, I didn’t realize what a thriving food scene Little Rock has. I can’t wait to be a part of it, especially as a food truck. I’m excited to utilize all of the fresh produce from the local farmers to make made-from-scratch pies and quiches. I’m looking forward to making pie for the people of Little Rock!”

We are too.
