Introducing Mnandi Pies!
We're so excited to introduce Mnandi Pies as one of our newest producer partners!
Mnandi Pies was born out of nostalgia for a time when the owner, Evis Chirowamhangu, was growing up in Zimbabwe. Savory pies are a very popular street food and snack in Zimbabwe but Evis grew up in a large family which made it financially difficult for her parents to afford any luxuries and at the time, savory pies were definitely a luxury.
Once in a while, her mother would be able to afford to buy a pie that she would cut 9 times to give all her kids a taste. It is that taste that stayed with Evis. When she moved to Canada, she couldn’t find anything like the Zimbabwean Pie on the market so she set out to make her own. Mnandi Pies aims to entice food lovers in the Toronto area with pies inspired by the Zimbabwean Cuisine.
They take pride in the quality and taste of their pies which is why the quality of their ingredients is a top priority. This is why they source the best spices from Zimbabwe to give our pies an authentic taste of Zimbabwe but everything else in their pies is sourced locally! They get their vegetables from the farmers at Withrow Park Farmer’s Market and they get the meat they use in their pies from Fresh from the Farm. They in-turn, source from Ontario Amish and Mennonite Farmers.
We're excited to offer five different flavours of their Zimbabwean pies at The Market including:
