Farro pasta?

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.

  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.
