Jeff Schmidt's pastry delights can be found at 70 of the area's favorite "mom and pop" restaurants, he said.
The owner of JJ Gandy's Pies told participants of The Great Garden-to-Beer Trolley Tour that he also buys from the local produce stands for the freshest produce.
"We get a really good crowd in here," Schmidt said. "Awesome clientele. Some of them have been coming in here for 30 years." (Watch the Patch video above.)
J. J. Gandy's Pies was the second stop of a recent Jolley Trolley charter tour, organized by Dunedin Community Garden volunteers, that sought to encourage and educate consumers on how to shop smarter, buy more locally-produced food and beverages, and how to ask the right questions about products.
The tour stopped at four local businesses — the Dunedin Community Garden, JJ Gandy's Pies in Palm Harbor, Jensen Bros Seafood and 7venth Sun Brewing (with special guest Bee Branch Creek Apiaries).
Dunedin Patch stowed away on the three-hour tour and shares a video spotlight from each local company along the way.
