Aimee Novak

Aimee moved to Prescott in 1994. Many people know her as the owner and chef of the now-closed restaurant Soldi. After closing her restaurant in 2016, Aimee began working for the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension as the Program Coordinator for Food Safety & Health Education. Her passions for food safety, cooking and connecting people to fresh vegetables complement PFM’s mission. Aimee has been shopping at the market since its early days on Cortez Street downtown. She doesn’t have a favorite item at the market–it changes with the season–but she generally buys whatever Cory from Whipstone Farm tells her to.
