Kassia's Pasta Farm
Without a market like the Handmade Homemade Market, Kassia’s Pasta Farm would not be moving as quickly towards the dreams of preparing pasta full time and making a local, organic product more easily accessible to a wider range of people. The HAHO Market facilitated her business from the beginning by keeping the vendor fees low and for providing a comfortable community event in which to work in. This gives Kassia the ability to experiment with new concepts, connect with other vendors and attendees to exchange ideas and to barter for new ingredients.
Over the course of 2012, Kassia's Pasta Farm's business branding, tabling materials, and product have greatly developed and improved.
“Having the opportunity to try new things in a low stress, supportive environment has been priceless. Without the chance to test the market, meet likeminded people, and get the encouragement I needed, I would not be applying to other markets this year or building a food cart to sell ready to eat pasta at events. It's been a wonderful experience both to look back on my growth and the growth of other HAHO businesses. Thank you guys so much for your support and encouragement! I look forward to many more markets and shenanigans!”
