Pasta Peddler and Blackbird Sweets are hosting a winter market on Hertel Avenue, giving shoppers a chance to browse a bevy of local products in one stop.

Located at 1547 Hertel Ave., it begins Nov. 22 and will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.

Pasta Peddler offers fresh and dried pastas, and frozen ravioli, said owner Michael Sedia. His daughter Andrea Amodeo runs Blackbird Sweets, which offers cupcakes and more. Those businesses will be open during the week.

On Saturdays, about 10 more vendors are expected, offering vegetables, meat, cheese, coffee, bread, goat’s milk soap and more. They include Prudom Farms, Plato Dale Farm, T-Meadow Farm, Public Espresso, BreadHive, Alpine Made, Chateau Buffalo wine and cider and more.
