Harvest time means a bevy of baking comes to New Hampshire. From Portsmouth bakeries to Amherst café’s, the number of places to get a mean apple pie in New Hampshire is virtually endless. We take our apple pies seriously here. Next time you’re planning an event (or if there’s no special occasion at all!) pick up a homemade pie at these 10 shops in New Hampshire.
The Ceres Bakery is delightful from the moment you spy in on the tiny side street in Portsmouth. The chairs out front for resting a bit or sipping coffee or hot chocolate are a welcome sight for visitors. Even more delightful is the apple pie—just one of several delectable flavors available each day. Grab a giant chocolate chip cookie, too, when you visit.
Michelle’s Gourmet Pastries & Deli has a huge following, especially when apples are in season and the scent of homemade apple pie is wafting from their ovens. It is wise to call early and reserve a pie or order one days ahead of time. These taste temptations sell out very quickly!
LaBoca Bakery longs to grace your table with their very best baked goods. From bread, pies, cakes and more baked fresh daily, their labor of love is apparent. Their apple pie is a favorite in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Call to order or to ask when apple pies will be available.
Harvey’s Bakery is a staple in Dover, New Hampshire. Visitors flock here for delicious baked goods to take home, and locals often forego baking their own in order to enjoy those baked at Harvey’s. Their apple pies are famous throughout the state. In fact, they rival the number of pumpkin pies ordered for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Get your order in early, as they’re quick to sell out, and order well ahead of time during the holidays.
Apple pies are but a drop in the bucket of the many baked goods at The Crust & Crumb, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less magnificent. Local apples and only farm to table ingredients comprise the delicate crust and tasty filling. You can’t go wrong with an apple pie—or anything else, for that matter—from this baking company.
Made seasonally, the apple pies at Riverstones Bakery are the perfect combination of tart and sweet. Baked into flaky, tender crusts, they melt in your mouth and make the perfect melting ground for ample scoops of vanilla ice cream. Call ahead to order or to be sure they’re on the menu.
The Holderness region relies on Squam Lake Marketplace for the best local apple pie in the region. Order pour in ahead of both Thanksgiving and Christmas, so be sure to claim yours early. Their pies have graced the holiday tables of countless locals and visitors.

Family owned and operated since 1947, Crosby Bakery bakes up an impressive selection of homemade baked goods. Their famous apple pies are among their finer selections. Follow them on Instagram to see when they’re available for sale, or order early for the holidays.
Buy an apple pie to take home, or enjoy a slice a la mode with fresh coffee when you visit Benson’s Bakery & Café. The team of bakers at Benson’s begins fresh each morning, making their apple pies—as well as their cakes and wide variety of pastry options—all from scratch.
Just because the Black Forest Café is a truck stop doesn’t mean you can’t get an exquisite apple pie there. Baked fresh daily, the establishment’s baked goods are among the very best in this part of the state. Do call ahead if ordering for the holidays.
