The Pasta Peddler, Blackbird Sweets to Hold Soft Opening on Sept. 9


The Pasta Peddler and Blackbird Sweets, two family owned businesses operating side-by-side, will open the doors at their new location at 1547 Hertel Ave., Buffalo, on Tuesday, Sept. 9. A grand opening celebration will be held from Sept. 23-28, with live music on Saturday, Sept. 27, beginning at 2 p.m.

Additionally, the owners also announced that their new 3,000-square-foot location will host the Winter Market on Hertel from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays from Nov. 22 through March 28.

“Our businesses are growing, and as a result we quickly outgrew our former location on the West Side,” said Eric Amodeo, co-owner of The Pasta Peddler. Amodeo owns and operates The Pasta Pedder, founded in 1994, along with his father-in-law, Mike Sedia. Blackbird Sweets was founded in 2004 by Andrea Sedia Amodeo, wife of Eric and daughter of Mike.

The Pasta Peddler has become well-known to local consumers throughout Western New York due to their participation in numerous farmers’ markets, including the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market in Buffalo, Main Street Marketplace in West Seneca, and the Williamsville, Hamburg and East Aurora markets. The Pasta Peddler offers a wide variety of gourmet pastas, ravioli, sauces and cooking products.

Founded in 2004, Blackbird Sweets specializes in birthday, wedding and special event cakes, cupcakes, cookies and brownies. Delicious vegan desserts are also available. Blackbird Sweets also participates in the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market.

A variety of specials and some exciting giveaways will be featured during the Sept. 23-28 grand opening celebration. Hours at the new location will be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.

Vendors are currently being accepted for the new Winter Market on Hertel. Farmers, food producers and original artists interested in participating should visit the Winter Market on Hertel Facebook page for more information.
