With such a variety of gourmet food products and eateries this is a wonderful place to come and eat, shop and just look at the sights. I loved Whole Spices you can find wonderful blends there. The chocolatier was amazing. The vinegars, oils and shrubs were fun to taste and explore. There is a terrific meat market, and the fresh... More

We like to go to Oxbow Market and on our many trips to Napa each year, we almost always stop here. Sometimes its for a fun lunch such as Hog Island Oysters or C-Casa; or one of the other enjoyable places to eat at. For Valentine's and special occasions, we have stopped at Kara's Cupcakes and bought some of their... More

Always a good stop before or after wine tasting, pick up some goodies for the trip home, or to round out a picnic. Variety is very good, including my fav, the Fatted Calf, just outside the west facing door. Dining inside is a little pricey, but fabulously trendy and cool. Picking and choosing a few items to go is the... More

My husband and I spent ten days in Napa recently. After several outstanding dinners at big name Napa venues, it was time to find a local market for lighter fare. We were very happy to find Oxbow Market! Delicious food at reasonable prices (for Napa). Vendors more than happy to give samples and talk about their products. We had a... More

This place is sooooo lovely - especially for foodies! Pick whatever steak you want at the butcher, and have them prepare it for you, eat great italian dishes, get a plate of charcuterie and cheeses, or eat Anettes chocolates or the cupcakes. Oxbow Public Market has it all - and of course: Great wine and beer!

This was a great place to wander around and find food deals. There were places to eat, food and gift items to buy, and try. There was ice cream and a bakery to satisfy you sweet tooth, and a fruit and vegetable stand. Yummmm.

Excellent market with some real high quality food choices. My daughter particularly enjoyed the cup cakes (which were excellent) and there were a wide range of other locally sourced food options to consider. Good local, free parking and we spotted a celebrity customer too, so what more could you want?

I was primarily interested in the food here, though that's not entirely all there is to it. It's a really nice space to just wonder around and see what's available. We had a delicious cheese board at the Oxbow Cheese & Wine Merchant, and picked up some fantastic salumi at the Fatted Calf. But there's a host of other things... More

Cute market with several upscale options. Very clean including restrooms. Do remember this is an upscale market. It is not very large and everything is expensive. We chose Five Dot Ranch for their unique menu items, food was expensive ($12-$15 per breakfast entree) and good but not special. 15+ minutes from order to food delivery was a bit disappointing for...
