  Omar the Pieman has been vending pies since 1964 after he left
  sailing the high seas as a merchant marine. He and his wife,
  Haneefah, decided to provide for their family in a traditional way by
  baking delicious homemade pies and cakes.
  
  In August of 1964 Omar left on his first route through the historic
  streets of New Orleans' French Quarter. As he went along shouting,
  "Pieman, pieman ... delicious, fresh-baked pies," his outgoing and
  friendly character, as well as his pies, became known and enjoyed by
  French Quarter residents.
  
  In his 20 years of business, Omar the Pieman, has been vending in the
  French Quarter, at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the
  Bastille Celebration and now finally from his own little "home, sweet
  home" kitchen in The Marketplace. Throughout the week from 9:30 to
  5:30 his son, Omar Ibn, delivers trays of velvety smooth pies baked
  daily by his mother, Haneefah (the lady behind the scenes). She was
  once quoted, "I won't let one pie out of my sight unless the crust
  melts in my mouth and the fillings are at their best."
  
  Taken from the sadly out-of-print New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival
  Cookbook,
