Marinade on Main

Formerly called Marmalade, Marinade is fiercely loyal to local farms, and even displays a chalkboard of those they support, including Page’s Organics. The menu offers habanero marmalade wings, burgers made with farm-raised beef, and a quinoa power bowl served in a barnyard-chic setting.marinadeonmain

 

Happy Hens

At this sprawling poultry ranch, you can see the hens in action—free range, cage free, and pasture raised. Eggs are available to buy in various sizes and quantities.

 

The London Bakery

Milagro Winery

This gorgeous 110-acre winery, which completed a renovation last fall, is peaceful and impeccably manicured, with a modern, inviting tasting room (check out the board games!). The kid- and dog-friendly outdoor area, which includes a fire pit, bocce court, and playground, is a prime place to sip their Bellorosso red blend and excellent Ballena Blanco.milagrowinery

 

The London Bakery

A slice of Britain has found a home at this Ramona café, where afternoon high tea with scones and clotted cream is the real draw. 

 

Ramona Family Naturals

This mostly organic grocer has produce, unique condiments—like a German-made, non-GMO, grass-fed butter—beauty products, grab-and-go foods, and a cozy seating area.ramonafamilynaturals

 

Oasis Camel Dairy

Oasis Camel Dairy

The farm, open only during events and private tours, will take you up close and personal with the humped animals via petting and rides. Visitors can walk the property during monthly farm events, and browse goods like camel-milk soaps, serums, lotions, and Austrian-made camel milk chocolate.

 

Ramona Antique Fair

Ramona Antique Fair

Far better organized and maintained than most antiques shops, this packed store—housed in a vintage 1915 building—has great kitchenware, clothing, toys, books that date back to the 1700s, and even complimentary coffee while you browse.
734 Main Street

 

ChuckAlek

These Ramona-based beer brewers focus on modern interpretations of classic styles, including sours, porters and stouts, and German-style lagers. Outside food is allowed, so we recommend noodles from Pinto Thai next door.chuckalek
