Life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.

Life takes away Pumpkin Market, and Magpie pie-shop owner Holly Ricciardi is making pumpkin mousse pie.

Ricciardi - saddened by the sudden closing of Pumpkin Market down the block - will offer complimentary slices of her Pumpkin Market Mousse Pie, while supplies last beginning Saturday, Aug. 10.

Ricciardi credits the market owners, Hillary Bor and Ian Moroney, with inspiring her to locate her shop at 1622 South.
