What is PastaBar

& How does it work?


Our fresh and bronze-die extruded dry pastas are available in a variety of different shapes and are sold by the half-pound or pound. To perfectly pair, choose from our selection of sauces that are respectful of tradition, but not bound by it. 

What's the deal with bronze-die

extruded pasta?

Bronze extrusion results in a rough, slightly porous texture which allows sauces and other ingredients to better cling to the pasta, giving you a finished product far superior to what you find in aisle 37.  


We release a new lineup

 and open our on-line shop every Tuesday afternoon...ish


Preorders are accepted for our pastas and sauces for pick-up during our market schedule Thursday-Tuesday -- be sure to choose the correct market for pick up when placing your order.

Pre-orders for each market close at 6pm the evening before the market.


You can find us throughout the summer at farmers markets in Woodstock, Barrington, Palatine and Crystal Lake.

You can also find PastaBar products on the shelves at Hub Market in McHenry, Fork It Foods in Crystal Lake and at Dad's Farm and Cafe in St. Joseph, MI

About Us

PastaBar Woodstock is the product of a husband and wife team, both veterans of Chicago's most beloved Italian restaurants. Obsessed -- like that's a bad thing! -- with Italian culture, wine and, most importantly, pasta, PastaBar is the purest form of Craig's operating philosophy...pasta for the people. We offer bronze-die extruded and hand-made pastas and traditional sauces utilizing ingredients of uncompromising quality sourced locally as well as from Italy.

PastaBar is our opportunity to share our love of these ingredients, this food and this life with the area we now call home.
