By Christine Tarlecki

We all say Thanksgiving is about the turkey…but really, it’s all about the desserts. These are just a few of our favorite bakeries and farm markets in Chester County that bake up the best.

Highland Orchards Farm and Market (located at 1000 Marshallton Thorndale Road in West Chester) have plenty of pies and goodies for your Thanksgiving table, even offering contactless drive-through pick-up service Thanksgiving week so you don’t have to leave the comfort or safety of your car. Order pies like apple cranberry or sweet potato crunch pie, cheesecakes, apple cider donuts, cookies, local honey, breads and loaves, plus gluten-free goodies too.

This little gem, Heart Stone Pastry (located at 400 Franklin Avenue in Phoenixville) has a cute array of pantry items and excellent coffee, but the real talent lies in their baked goods, like their salted bourbon pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and heirloom apple pie, as well as their galettes and cookies.
