Sunrise Market to bring Iron Range favorites to the cities
A nondescript building that holds a treasure trove of foodie delights
The foods from the Forti family bakery have been fortifying the people of Hibbing for more than 100 years. Christmas morning isn't the same without a loaf of their honey-spiked, walnut-studded potica smeared with fresh cream butter, and transplants from the Iron Range have longed for their pasties and squishy, fat loaves of Italian bread. Now, there's no need to make the three hour journey up north to satiate those cravings because the Forti family's Sunrise Market is open for business in St. Paul.
Sunrise Market has a vast array of dry and fresh pastas
The market is run by Tom Forti, the fourth generation of a family that has long shared its Italian specialties with hungry Minnesotans. First, the Forti's line of dried pastas (including a divine butternut squash linguini) began popping up at farmers markets and at the Italian family-run business, Morelli's Market in St. Paul. Shortly thereafter, we could find those brightly colored ribbons of carbs on the shelves at Lunds and Byerly's stores.
