How to Order

Lead Time
We bake-to-order so we don't keep an inventory of empanadas on hand. We appreciate at least 3 business days advance notice for all orders or 1 week notice for orders of 5 dozen or more. We'll contact you to confirm the order, answer any questions, and provide a pricing quote.

Minimum Order
Empanadas are ordered by the dozen. Check out our Market Menu for the current flavors. These empanadas are available daily for catering and our farmer's markets.  You can find our complete list of items on our larger Catering Menu. To order flavors that aren't currently featured on the Market Menu, the minimum is 5 dozen per flavor.

Hot or Take & Bake
Ready to eat now or want an empanada stash for later? We offer both! Take & Bake empanadas are partially baked and sold cold. Store them in the refrigerator or freezer and pop them in the oven for 10 minutes when the craving strikes.

We deliver throughout the SF Bay Area for orders over $150. Within a 5 mile radius of Oakland, delivery is free. Outside of Oakland, orders are subject to a delivery charge. You may prefer to pickup instead.

We don't have a retail storefront, but we can arrange pickup at our Farmer's Market locations or our kitchen in Emeryville.

Once your order is confirmed we'll send you an email invoice with a secure payment link via Square.

Catering FAQ

How big are the empanadas?
Sizes vary. Our savory empanadas are snack size. You'll finish it in 4-5 bites. Sweet empanadas are a little smaller at 3 bites.

How much should I order?
One savory empanada is a great snack, but you can make a meal with 2-3 savory empanadas, a side, and a sweet. If multiple appetizers or dinner courses are served, we'd recommend 1 savory empanada per person.

Can't I just order at the Farmer's Market?
Of course! But if you order in advance, you'll never have to worry that we'll sell out of your favorite flavor. We'll have your order packaged and ready to go, no waiting. Plus, we give a 10% discount compared to the market price.

Do you ship?
Not yet. But, if there's enough interest, we'll figure out a way to make it happen. Message us and we'll add you to the list.
