This is my favorite spot to bring/send a wide array of family members -- because everybody from the hyperactive three year old to his wheelchair-using grandmother can find interesting things to see and, most important, exactly what they want to eat. I'm a huge fan of C Casa (love the buffalo tacos!). My sister likes the sandwiches at Five Dot... More

I came here with high hopes because I really enjoyed the Ferry Building and Oxbow Market is developed by the same people. There was a lot of food places open but since I had already eaten, I mostly browsed. I did buy some lovely jam and a Napa rub steak for later. Overall, this market wasn't as exciting as the... More

Found this place while in Napa. I love the markets in Pennsylvania and this reminded me of them, but on a smaller scale. Lots of parking and restaurants inside. Loved this little place.

We went to Oxbow on both days of our stay in Napa, it being at just 5 mins drive from our hotel, thanks to Uber car services. Oxbow was a place with a good variety of food, drinks, desserts, souvenirs, and delicious cupcakes. We tried authentic Italian pizzas, icecreams, cupcakes and pastas, all inside the market. The good thing is... More

We were a group of five girlfriends staying in Napa for four days. We visited oxbow daily. This organic market that includes restuarant and groceries is a must. Add it to your list.

An indoor food court/market that includes some of the best eats and wines (and coffee and ice cream and chocolate) in a casual, jostling, environment.

This is one of the best market places I've seen and the items to purchase are different (not commercialized). The food looked good (although we didn't eat here). I could have spent a lot more time and a lot more money if I stayed longer in this market! The big downside (hence the 4 stars vs. 5 stars): Space is... More

If you are staying in Napa (we stayed next to the Westin) you want to come here and eat, buy goodies to take to your room. Awesome selection of breads, cheese and wine. You can also eat there - lots of tables and places to sit and enjoy all the freshness of Napa. We were in here quite a bit.

Cupcakes, coffee, mixed nut brittles, cheese, oysters oh my! Great place to visit and sample the wares throughout the Market. Not your local store by any means, but well worth a visit.
