“Pie is perhaps the most important part of Thanksgiving, the warm spice of pumpkin, the rich sweetness of pecan.

The new pop-up space at the American Tobacco Campus will become pie central next month as East Durham Bake Shop moves in.

Married owners Ali Rudel and Ben Filippo are no strangers to pop-ups, having run their pie and pastry business, then known as East Durham Pie Company, for years with weekly stops at breweries or farmers markets. This spring they finally opened their pastry shop in a brightly renovated building on Driver Street in East Durham.

The ATC pop-up is all about Thanksgiving, running from Nov. 5 to 21, serving pies from the bakery’s seasonal menu and pastries. Similar to their own shop, Rudel and Filippo also will serve coffee, tea and juice. The shop will sell pie by the slice for those immediate cravings or whole to take home.”
