There’s a new vendor at the Emporia Farmers Market, with a new product. Nonna Lucia Pasta debuted two weeks ago and was an immediate success.
Andrea Garritano Freeze, soprano, voice teacher and adjunct at the Emporia State University music department, was looking for an extra source of income this summer. The market presented a great opportunity.
Combining her excellent culinary skills with a free summer schedule, Andrea created a local source for something Emporia doesn’t have much access to: fresh pasta.
