Our Story

In 2014, during a family trip to Seattle, we made a memorable stop at Pike Place Market where we encountered an unusual find: dark chocolate linguine. Intrigued by this unique offering, we delved into research and discovered it was crafted by a small artisanal company named Pappardelle’s Pasta.

Specializing in farmers’ markets, Pappardelle’s distributed their products to over 250 markets nationwide. Around the same time, I was contemplating a shift away from healthcare and found myself considering the idea of selling pasta. Encouraged by the success of other businesses in downtown Frederick, we decided to take a leap of faith and join the farmers’ market circuit.

A few months later, an opportunity presented itself on Market Street, prompting us to make another bold move into a brick-and-mortar shop. Since then, we’ve expanded our offerings to include a variety of Italian-imported shapes and flavors sourced from other small businesses.
