Fresh Perspective: Deano’s Pasta & K9 Concierge







Every week at Farmer’s Market is about eating good, fresh local food and feeling good. This week’s featured vendor Deano’s Pasta offers a fresh taste of Italy by creating artisan pastas that are perfect for home-cooked meals with friends and family. As for feeling good, what’s better than giving pets extra-special care and attention by way of K9 Concierge’s natural remedies. Come by the Kendall Square Farmers’ Market on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to see why these – and all of the other market vendors – are dishing out goodness and happy vibes.

Freshly made pasta is a tasty treat. When it’s filled with delectable delights from Somerville’s Deano’s Pasta (think of lobster, roasted butternut squash and amaretto, artichoke and marscapone), it’s even better. That because Deano’s Pasta is made with the pride that comes from 60+ years of experience in providing restaurants with gourmet foods.

Established in 1947 by Ralph Matarazzo, Deano’s Pasta remains a family-run business with Dean Matarazzo at the helm. Using locally sourced ingredients—and nothing else—Deano’s offers a whole lot of choices. Gnocchi is made with potato, spinach, ricotta, or pumpkin. Deano’s sells eight types of tortellini, as well as long- and short-cut pasta. The Somerville store now has four collections—ricotta, seafood, autumn, and vegetable—all stuffed with high quality ingredients, from crab scallop to saffron dough.
