JaWanda’s Sweet Potato Pies is a family owned bakery that relies strongly on their faith for success. Raised in Alabama, her mother taught her at an early age how to satisfy a hungry appetite in the kitchen with good ole southern cooking. Sweet Potato Pie is a dessert she learned to bake after marrying her husband (Eddie) of 25 plus years. As a result of his rave review, family and friends started requesting them and she later began to take hundreds of pies to markets that would sell out.
In addition to purchasing JaWanda’s pies at Farmers Markets and the store front location; they are available at select Piggly Wiggly Grocery Stores, Cowboys 280 and The Market at Pepper Place. The store front location serves fourteen different flavors of sweet potato pies including the original, pecan, orange cream cheese, and s’mores, along with her mother’s peach cobbler recipe, and other southern desserts such as pound cakes, blackberry peach cobbler, and more. When you walk in the door you get that aroma, taste, and hospitality like being in your grandma’s kitchen.
JaWanda’s Sweet Potato Pies is rated 5 Star, because their goal is to always serve you “A Taste of Heaven!”
