HIGHLIGHTED SEASONAL VENDOR

Each week this eblast highlights the vendors who come to market on alternate weeks or on a "per diem" basis. We've also begun, each week, to feature one of our seasonal vendors — many of whom have been part of the ABFM for multiple years — so that you can get to know them better. Information on all our vendors is always available at our website:

www.ABFarmersMarket.org/our-vendors


VALICENTI ORGANICO

Chef-Owners David and Michelle Valicenti bring their fine-dining experience to production of their farmstead ravioli, fresh pasta, and sauces. Their farm kitchen (set inside their beautifully restored barn) and new greenhouse are surrounded by the fields of Valicenti Farm, from which come the organically grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs that go directly into all their products. The Valicentis began in 2008 with their signature Red Gravy tomato-basil pasta sauce; they now supply more than 70 stores and 19 farmers markets.
