About Nicola

Nicola's Marketplace was created to offer an artisanal line of products to its customers. We are committed to make all our products fresh and with simple ingredients. Founded by Chef Nicola, the Marketplace was started in 2021 with a mission to bring customers a delightful experience with every order. Chef Nicola is passionate about high quality and taste when it comes to creating the ultimate culinary experience. His passion is what makes his customers return again and again. Always creating new recipes to bring out the best of local and seasonal ingredients he sources.

The Marketplace was created to share his passion with others and expand his ability to reach others. He is committed to give his customers a place they can trust to purchase high quality products. Each product is created by Chef Nicola and never made with any preservatives, processed ingredients, or fillers.


Chef Nicola was passionate about the culinary arts from his early childhood. He would spend time with his grandmother making pasta, pizza, and desserts from scratch in her basement. This built the foundation of learning the traditional Italian cooking methods passed down from generations before.

He attended the Italian Culinary Academy in Parma Italy, where he received a Grand Diploma Degree. There he learned different techniques of cooking and baking with a farm-to-table foundation that became his inspiration to start this journey. In 2012 he launched Nicola’s Pasta bringing fresh artisanal ravioli and pasta to local customers through Farmers Markets. Now he has created the Marketplace so he can offer his pasta to a broader market and further expand his line of products to include handmade cookies and biscotti.

Keep us bookmarked and visit often as we continue to grow our line of products staying true to Chef Nicola’s mission to offer fresh, artisanal products made with simple high-quality ingredients. Buon Appetito!.


From Our Customers

We stopped by the Summit Market this past Sunday and picked up Zucchini and Garlic Scape, Mushroom and Ramp, and Sweet Pea.

We are always so impressed with the explosion of flavour every time when you bite into each ravioli. You can taste every ingredient and you can tell it is fresh. There is nothing like it!

Nicola's makes the most awesome ravioli! So many choices, we love the pumpkin, sweet potato, corn, mushroom.

His sauce and spinach spaghetti are excellent also. Always tastes so fresh and delicious. And the nicest guy!

Absolutely OUTSTANDING ravioli. I actually make my own pasta frequently and STILL purchase ravioli from Nicola's. The short rib is AMAZING. And, the apple fennel is TO DIE FOR. Just stocked up for the next couple of weeks.

Try everything--- you will NOT be disappointed. Fusilli pasta is always GREAT in homemade soup and FAB for homemade mac and cheese. Nicola also makes AWESOME sauce that can be used for pasta and homemade pizza.
