While we can anticipate many weeks of glorious warm weather ahead, the Labor Day weekend officially marks the end of Summer. If you’re planning a picnic or a home BBQ to mark the occasion, you’ll do well to stop by Ratto’s, and the Old Oakland Farmers Market tomorrow (Friday, August 30) to pick up some provisions. The market is bursting with summer fruit and vegetables, and we’ve just replenished our wine bins with some great deals. Imported cheeses have been cut, and our deli case will be full of salume, pate & deli meats. We’ll be open until 4:30 tomorrow, and will be closed from Saturday, August 31 through Monday, September 2. Everyone at Ratto’s wishes you a safe & fun-filled weekend!
