Pappardelle's Pastas from Denver, CO
Pappardelle's Pasta is a family owned pasta factory in Denver, CO. Open since 1984, their hand-made pastas are dried slowly to preserve flavor and nutrition. Check out their new gluten-free line !
Here in Fort Collins, these pastas are available from Nan Zimmerman ( Pasta Pazza ) at various farmers' markets. Also available are frozen raviolis, gnocchi, sauces and pestos. All natural ingredients, no preservatives.
Hours and Location for 2014
In Larimer County there are now at least five separate Farmers' Markets. The Colorado Agricultural Marketing Cooperative offers markets in Fort Collins and Loveland to local growers and consumers. (Emphasis on local here, as produce is restricted to Larimer, Morgan, Boulder or Weld Counties, with the exception of Western Slope fruit). The County of Larimer offers its own market which is run by its Master Gardener volunteers on Saturday mornings starting in mid May. Please note their return to their "original" location in the Courthouse parking lot. There is also a market on Thursday mornings in Estes Park, and Thursday afternoons in Berthoud The Colorado Department of Agriculture maintains a listing of all the registered farmers' markets in Colorado in its 2012 Colorado Farm Fresh Directory.
