Artisan Pasta from Pappardelle's Pasta Comes to Chicago French Market, Opening Today

Handcrafted, natural pastas debut at Chicago French Market

Chicago French Market at MetraMarket in Chicago's Fulton River District (131 N. Clinton St.; 312-575-0306) announces its newest vendor, Pappardelle's Pasta , opening Tuesday, Mar. 23, offering its signature handmade artisan dryer and fresh frozen pasta made with 100 percent durum semolina flour.

Founded in 1984, Pappardelle's Pasta provides the finest restaurants, specialty shops and farmers' markets with more than 100 varieties of pastas, ranging from traditional combinations like Italian Pesto Blend or Garden Spinach Angel Hair, to exotic offerings such as Fanciful Fruit Gemelli, Dark Chocolate Linguine, Spanish Saffron Trenette, Spring Medley Orzo, Tunisian Harissa Fettuccine, and Sweet Potato Pappardelle. Pappardelle's also offers sauces, pesto, bruschetta, oils, vinegars and marinades.

Already serving several farmers' markets throughout the Chicago area and across the country in markets like Seattle's Pike Place Market, owners Jim and Paula Steinberg open Chicago's first permanent Pappardelle's location at Chicago French Market, under the helm of general manager Norine Mulry.

"Opening a retail location at Chicago French Market was a no-brainer for us," says Jim Steinberg. "This is an exciting opportunity for us to become part of Chicago's first indoor year-round farmer's market in the growing, thriving neighborhood of the Fulton River District."

Pappardelle's Pasta joins an already impressive lineup of 30 vendors in Chicago French Market, a European-inspired market offering an array of local produce, meats, seafood, breads, pastries, cheese and wine, chocolates, pastas, artisan-made goods, flowers and a seating area for customers. MetraMarket's Chicago French Market and its vendors stay open year-round, six days per week, and is located at 131 N. Clinton St. (between Washington and Randolph Streets).
