Farro pasta?

  • 8

Anyone know where to buy farro pasta in the area? Whole Foods does not have any and I am aware of Amazon. Would love to find a specific store that sells it.

Thanks!

  1. I've bought it at South End Formaggio. Correction: I've bought farro there, but not pasta made from farro. But it's the sort of store that might carry it.

      Both South End and Cambridge Formaggio Kitchen carry a variety of cuts of farro pasta. I work at the Cambridge store.

    2. The Fruit Center in Hingham had several varieties last time I looked (before Christmas).

      1. Just bought some in NYC a week or so ago. I can't recall seeing it here.

        1. Try Salumeria Italiana in the North End or order by mail from http://www.rustichella.it/English/hom...

          1. Capone in either Somerville or Cambridge sells Farro pasta.

              Yes, Capone's sells it. Not only do they have very fine pastas made from farro flour, they also have whole-grain farro, and farro flour. Be warned that the farro pastas are something like $5 or $6 per pound, but well worth it. Excellent with a briny sauce made of anchovies and onions.

            2. Whole Foods in NYC started carrying it (Alce Nero brand) and its delicious. I'd try checking WH again to see and requesting it if they dont have it.
