Deano’s Pasta has been making local, all natural, non GMO, gourmet pastas since 1947 and is located next to Stop & Shop in Somerville (almost touching their parking lot) right off Broadway and McGrath Highway.  Their products are sold at Whole Foods in Swampscott and Lynnfield, Mckinnon’s in Danvers, Crosby’s Market and Marblehead Community Store in Marblehead, as well as the Meat Market and Winthrop Market in Winthrop. You can walk into their factory and buy pasta or find them at the Swampscott market this Sunday, August 17 and then every other Sunday!

They will be selling Raviolis, Fusilli noodles, Marinara Sauce as well as their Onesto (Honest) Cream Sauce. All items are sold fresh frozen in a full 1 lb package (16 oz.) which serves 2 to 3 people. Prices range from $4.00 to $8.00. Bring something home for dinner or keep in your freezer for future meals!

{Vendor Spotlight} New Meat Vendor

PiperRanch1

We are excited to introduce you to our new meat vendor!  Unfortunately our fantastic meat vendor John Crow Farm has run into some staffing issues for the remainder of the season so they had to bow out of the market for the rest of the year.  We know how important it is for you to have a source for local, grass fed meats so we searched high and low for a new vendor to replace them.

We were lucky enough to find Piper Ranch farm in Maine and they have agreed to join us every other week for the rest of the season!!  We hope that you’ll come out to support them and show them that its worth the trip they make down from Maine!

In case you missed them the first time, they will be at the market this weekend (September 29th).  They have an amazing selection of salami’s, beef cuts, pork, smoked meats and much more!

Come by the market this weekend to stock up on some meat for the week and of course all of the amazing fresh produce the farmers will have this weekend!
