Oakland Retailer Wins Laurels


The Pasta Shop in Oakland's Rockridge Market Hall is among six businesses nationwide to be named "Outstanding Retailers of 2008" by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade.

The six were nominated and selected by NASFT members for "weaving consummate customer service, tastings, and education with premium foods," according to the new issue of the organization's Specialty Food magazine. Siblings Sara, Tony, and Peter Wilson have operated the noted noodletorium for over 25 years. Kudos to them.—Anneli Rufus
