Dumpling & Strand at the Mill City Farmers Market

Dumpling & Strand Co-Proprietors Kelly McManus and Jeff Casper, a.k.a. Noodlers at Large, debuted an array of fresh pasta (dubbed "exceptionally curious noodles") at the June 25 Market. Their small-batch European pasta and Asian noodles both have gluten-free options.

In addition to the superior taste and texture, an added bonus of these fresh noodles is the quick cooking time - just 3 minutes for the Rustic Egg Pici I'm making.

Their products can also be frozen, so feel to stock up when they return on these upcoming Market dates: July 9, July 16, July 30 and August 6. You can also follow them on Facebook.
